I do enjoy Maya's work. I have read a couple of her books but it is her voice that captures me and how she brings the words alive that touch me....
Dear Sweet Maya. I feel like I need some rising now.... things look very bleak to me. All the game playing, and garbage swirling about in DC about the health care situation, and Afghanistan. If more troops are sent, I think I will be seriously depressed.
A truly inspiring poem. Maya is a true genius and she has certainly uplifted my spirit this morning. Let's hope things get better. Right now it may look bleak but as they say - things look darkest just before the dawn..."tanzanite jewelry
Maya's delivery was dead-on perfect ... so inspiring!"you can shoot me with your words, you can cut me with your lies, you can kill me with your hatefulness, but just like life, I rise."
When I went through a lot of the trauma here in Alaska her poetry was one of the things which gave me hope. I was just going over all the things I did which turned out to be right during that time and I had forgotten about that thank you.
