Maya Angelou

 

Born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1928
Author, Poet, Activist, Artist and mother
My most respected
Black female poet
Penned some of my favourite poems
Caged bird
Phenomenal woman
Still I rise
Alone
As a child I read her book
I know why the caged bird sings
The book touched me
Was re-read many times
Maya Angelou
Is an inspiration
Achieved so much
And had an open heart

April 4 1928 – may 28 2014
