she is real.

She second guesses every word,

every thought

every choice.

She has made many mistakes and still makes them daily.

She is not perfect by far.

She loves hard

her family

her friends

even complete strangers.

Her love pours out and sometimes it’s too much.

She gives everything to everyone.

a gift to those in need but a curse to her for those who take everything.

She is not good at saying no but

she does know perseverance

very well.

Her boldness moves her forward.

She never gives up.

She will always fight.

She is tough but so fragile.

She’ll never admit that to you.

But the secret cry in her heart knows the truth.

She came from nothing

this victory can never be taken away.

She has survived so much already yet still the rain falls.

She is not shaken.

She is calm.

She knows nothing of the future or where she’ll be.

Her risks have changed her path.

She couldn’t resist the temptation of adventure.

She wants to be different.

She wants to live

to love

to be found

to explore.

She wants more.

She is against herself and at the same time not.

Her struggle lies within

Her truths can be distorted

She needs Him.

She loves Him more than words.

He is her everything.

She knows that.

She stands on that fact with a smile.

Her life, like anyone’s, can be a storm

a sweet blessing

a burst of laughter

or carry the weight of a million tears.

She can be so many things.

She can be confident

encouraging

funny

insecure

honest

optimistic

angry

independent

At her worst she feels irrelevant.

She is content in her sorrow.

Her brokenness humbles her.

Her depth always brings her back.

In the midst of the passing moments she is always

just her.

She can be no one else.

She is unique.

She is missed.

She is loved.

She is enough.

Maya Angelou: An Inspiration to the World

Maya Angelou: An Inspiration to the World

“I believe the most important single thing, beyond discipline and creativity is daring to dare.” “I can be changed by what happens to me. I refuse to be reduced by it.”

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”

“My mission in life is not to survive, but to thrive: and to so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

Maya Angelou’s life and successes just prove that you can build a beautiful life no matter what your background. She was truly gifted with an amazing ability to speak so profoundly and elegantly. Every time I read her poems, quotes, books… I am always left in awe of her writings and simply inspired. She was deep and I’m so thankful that she was able to share her talent with the world. She was the phenomenal woman, a legendary author, a real woman whose story and life has brought hope and strength to me, in my own life.

May she rest in peace…

Dr. Maya Angelou
