The Revolution She Was...

"...And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free." 

Happy Birthday Maya Angelou...
Dedicated to the phenomenal woman...
The birth of a thought,
The dawn of an era,
The lines of a woman,
A phenomenal woman.
Freeing a caged bird
From the clutches of prejudice,
Defining love and loss
On her own terms
A life so glorious
As to move the dumbest stone to soul-stirring speech.
Ideas so powerful
As to turn a flickering flame of light
To roaring fires of creation,
Stark simplicity dripping with wisdom
Denser than the densest metal.
Wielding the pen with finesse and feeling,
She stands tall in the hearts of people,
The halls of power,
The gardens of love...
Revolution she was,

Inspiration she is.
