    Such an inspiration to many. Madam Angelou, you will forever be missed. May your inspiring words of courage, peace, joy, and laughter live on forever. May many find your life as a stepping stone to go beyond all that hinders. RIP.....

    When the caged canary sings
    The song of freedom and love
    And flies on imaginary wings
    We will remember you Angelou........

    RIP..... a life well lived to inspire others.......

    Bye Maya Angelou!

    Would I draw a picture?
    To show how your life;
    Beautifully cast a rainbow to many
    Would I write a verse?
    To share how your life;
    So candidly spoke for justice
    Would I sing a song?
    To voice how your life;
    Lyrically inspires many in hope
    I would, if I could
    Yet so wide and deep is your bequest
    Time may not grant my request
    Space would fine me of copyright
    Still what you made the world feel
    Lives forever none can steal
    Maya many will forever admire you
    Your dazzling smile
    Filled with a caring grandeur
    Your motherly heart
    Teaching the life art in solemn acuity
    A true ant you made a banquet
    For the globe to dine off her aunt
    Angelou let your voice live on
    Rest in the solace of the angelic choir
    Till life’s destiny dawns in ecstasy
    Bye Maya Angelou

    Since I became acquainted with Maya Angelou through her television appearances etc etc, I have admired her for her warm friendliness and obvious humour. Some women are natural beacons for other women. Maya has been one of those. May God rest her in peace. Amen. Mega Katonda Afirika, WIFE OF GOD.

    Condolence to the bereaved family of Maya Angelou. May her soul rest in peace and her works inspire other soul like me searching for the truth through the art of poetry. Great woman may your spirit be blessed and be with our creator.

The Lesson

I keep on dying again.
Veins collapse, opening like the
Small fists of sleeping
Children.
Memory of old tombs,
Rotting flesh and worms do
Not convince me against
The challenge. The years
And cold defeat live deep in
Lines along my face.
They dull my eyes, yet
I keep on dying,
Because I love to live.
