Sweet, Sweet Maya / by J. Ivy

She taught us, She defined us, She redefined us, She helped us find us, She inspired us, She shaped us, She wrote us, She painted us with words, She filled us with pride, She made us proud of the skin we’re in, She lifted us, She convinced us to rise again, And again, She gave us strength, She whispered life into our spirits, She read our beauty, She fed our hearts, She motivated our beings, She encouraged our courage, She saved so many, She birthed the poet in us all, She spoke love into our existence, She shattered the hate that imprisoned us, She set us free with her mind, her soul, her heart, her words, She is our sweet voice, She is the voice of the ages… Sweet, Sweet Maya, we will forever love you. Rest In Peace…

She taught us,

She defined us,

She redefined us,

She helped us find us,

She inspired us,

She shaped us,

She wrote us,

She painted us with words,

She filled us with pride,

She made us proud of the skin we’re in,

She lifted us,

She convinced us to rise again,

And again,

She gave us strength,

She whispered life into our spirits,

She read our beauty,

She fed our hearts,

She motivated our beings,

She encouraged our courage,

She saved so many,

She birthed the poet in us all,

She spoke love into our existence,

She shattered the hate that imprisoned us,

She set us free with her mind, her soul, her heart, her words,

She is our sweet voice,

She is the voice of the ages…

Sweet, Sweet Maya, we will forever love you.

Rest In Peace…
