A Poem I Wrote when Maya Angelou Passed

Maya,

You left the world today. Somehow, I know…

This omen, this prayer you left behind…

You set it on fire so that those who could see would realize

You held a truth.

Maya I feel what you did

You lived a life blazed of your own passion

Maya you created your own life of courage and truth-speaking.

In my life’s path, I honor you.

I ask that you guide me to blaze my own path of truth.
