A Tribute to Maya Angelou - The Loss of an Icon Poem by Shobana Gomes


Forms of glistening sheen cover her tribute
From the minds of the literate to the sub-ordinates of culture
From the wake of the dead to the countless who live by her words
Inspired with the norm of a stalker

Making her debut, she marked a name
Denied and discouraged - two terms she shunned
Of a poet did she honor from her list of accords
A laborer of the tireless, a distinction of a leader
Maya Angelou, an inspirer
Maya Angelou, a great leader
Maya Angelou, the phenomenal woman
Maya Angelou, a woman of love.

May you Rest In Peace.
