Happy Birthday in Heaven Mama Maya

Standard

Maya

Today I would like to send a special birthday greeting all the way up to heaven to one of my heroes, Dr. Maya Angelou. Her words and wisdom have helped me live my best life. I am still a work in progress, but at least I know some things about life. I will continue to strive to be the best person I can be because I know better than my past and I have resolved to do better.

 

How ironic is it that National Poetry Month houses Dr. Angelou’s birthday? It was cosmic alignment. I would like to share one of my favorite poems by her with you today. It is called The Mask and she used it in conjunction with Paul Laurence Dunbar’s poem We Wear the Mask. This poem has inspired a story from me as well. It is at the beginning stages of outline and character analysis, but I plan to push forward with it very soon.
