Remembering Maya Angelou's Legacy, Happy 87th Birthday...


Forever Maya
(Dedicated to the life time achievement of Maya Angelou)

There was something about your voice…
There was something about your smile…
There was something about your grace…
There was something about your style…
There was something about your beauty…

As if your soul had channeled through the
the deepest deltas of the Nile.

Your words roared with faith,
Your heart gave with passion,
Your memory is etched in stone,
Your teachings are every lasting.

Your words sang songs of freedom,
Like a cadence guiding us along the way.
You guided our paths like an Angel,
Never leading us astray.

As your legacy lives on Forever,
We now know why the caged bird sings.
Hope is what you taught us,

Let Freedom Sing,
Let Freedom Sing,
Let Freedom Sing
