In Remembrance of Maya Angelou by Yolanda Gibson

Rest In Peace Maya Angelou
Without your majestic poetry
What is the world going to do?

Your words preached to millions
Inspired billions,
And will be remembered by trillions.

Your presence was far from nominal
In fact you were exceptional,
Giving every woman permission to be “PHENOMENAL”.

Through your roaring voice we knew that everything would be okay
Because you always had something positive to say,
Everything that you did was in an extraordinary way.

Great Lady, You have received your wings,
You are now amongst Heavens, Oueens and Kings.
It is only because of you, that
“I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings.”
