Maya's Eyes

Oh, Ms. Angelou,

What you have seen!

A cultural revolution.

You overcame ignorance of those with no faith.

 

Oh, Ms. Angelou,

What you have felt!

Hurt, disguist and hate.

You overcame distrust of character.

 

Oh, Ms. Angelou,

What you have heard!

Discrimination and loud.

You overcame starvation of the soul,

 

The voice of inspiration when faith, trust and bad character exist.

You will be missed rich woman who's words will live forever.

Maya Angelou is more than a voice of a generation.  She spoke to the human condition over time.
