You're Immortal Maya

You're Immortal Maya

A Poem by Bidu Ibrahim
"

A tribute to Maya Angelou

"

Taken me long indeed,

They alleged you’re dead

Flowery eulogies flowed

And your photos and quotes adorned every wall!

Silently

Shocked

Uncomprehending,I watched!

I hear you

I feel you

I see you

Clearly like the first day

I heard you

I felt you

I saw you,

You’re immortal, Maya;

Black beautiful and brave,

A phenomenal woman!
