Maya Angelou


Maya Angelou
Was a lady with a vision
She reached out to many people
And carried out her mission
She was an inspiration
To one and all
She taught everyone
How to stand up tall
She was involved in a never ending battle
She fought for justice, education, and equality
Her legacy was widespread
For all to see
She also wrote beautiful poetry
She lifted her voice very nicely
Her words were written with zeal and vigor
They carried such harmony
She was very witty
She was pleasantly headstrong
Sadly, at the age of eighty-six
She has passed on

    Yes It is sad that the world has lost such a beautiful soul. However 86 years is actually quite a long time. Luckily she was able to overcome her obstacles and found a way to reach out to others. I'm sure she feels as if she lived a long and fulfilling life. A very nice tribute poem Ronell. Well done! (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
