The Tears I Shed For Maya Angelou

The tears I shed for Maya are salty to the taste but filled with sweetness of nectar…pride of my African race.
The tears I shed for Maya, oceans covering the earth, as angelic host celebrate the purpose of her birth. A purpose fulfilled, a life well lived, a true example set…all done so phenomenally…my tears haven’t dried up yet.
The tears I shed for Maya are not just because of her death but because of the cards of life she played.. the real value of her wealth.
As the ancestors join in with me both praising and weeping the benefits of her contributions, I am directly reaping. Her poetic lyrics hug me tight. I relate to her warrior spirit…St. Louis taught us both to fight. I have a lupus cause to stand up for…so activist I am. Determined to make a difference…to use my voice as much as I can. My spiritual roots go deep in slavery and wrap around Egyptian legacy…like Maya I proclaim the beauty of being black you see…she was, so I am, for this I shout with glee…Maya Angelou today I weep for you because you thought ofdownload_20140528_164807 those coming behind you and one day you wept for me!
