oh, her words...


"Let gratitude be the pillow upon which
you kneel to say your nightly prayer.
And let faith be the bridge you build
to overcome evil and welcome good."
Maya Angelou


her words
be it a simple phrase
or a cadenced verse
or her life story
her words
have pierced our hearts
and transported our souls
and raised our collective consciousness

together we listened
together we learned
and
together we mourn

  2. Was reading through some quotes of hers last night and was so stuck by the way Maya grasped some really deep truths. Her influence will be felt through the legacy of her words.
