The Laureate of Heaven

In memory of Dr. Maya Angelou

freed from a broken cage
escaping the punishing rage
you did rise with every breathe
revealing the beauty we all possess
a delicate heart dipped in ugliness
grew to find peace and happiness
your confidence, your amnesty
a beacon that shined upon humanity
that bathed us in the essence of love
with every poetic word we are proud of
the quintessential phenomenal woman
that embraced us all to your bosom
we will miss your powerful gifts
words that linger and uplifts
words that inspired and consoled
that will forever live in our souls
your words the spirits will forever whisper
until we meet rest peaceful my sweet sister
