Tag Archives: Poetry Maya Angelou new year inspire inspirational

Since this is my first post of the year would like to start new and have Monday be poetry Monday!

The poem of the week was written by one of my biggest inspirations the queen of words herself Ms. Maya Angelou.

Touched by an Angel

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.
Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.
We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love’s light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.

-Maya Angelou

Hope you all enjoy
