A Special Tribute to Maya Angelou



You inspired me to be different

I struggled in the past to avoid my creative side and stepped in to be like everyone else

But you helped me to look past my fears and take off my fake mask to reveal my true self

I’ve seen the beauty behind my smile and in front of the mirror

I embrace the little freckles on my face and stand proudly of my womanly figure

I may not be the prettiest but you made me realized there was no such thing as the ugliest

You emphasized the true meaning of beauty and it was obvious

To see how much of an inspiration you were to others is tremendous

Speechless but I mean this with all of my heart

You gave me the voice that I thought I never had and I thank you for who you are

I thank you for your wisdom words, really meant a lot to me

I’ve read all of your books and kept every quotes on constant repeat

I will always remember you as one of the best poet and I’ll admire your work forever

I love writing poems because of you, that’s why I’m putting this altogether

I will no longer hide my emotions and instead continue to express my feelings in writing

I will shine my talent in pride and ignite the fire of my dreams to be enlighten

Thank you Maya Angelo

It is not a goodbye but a sweet hello

To wonderful memories and a Honorable legacy

That will open doors to young women like myself to take the lead

I appreciate you with much respect and love

Thanks to you, it is not in my blood to ever give up

I just wanted you to know how much of a big impact you are to me

So lovely and sweet

Maya Angelou, may you forever be blessed and rest in peace
