I have always loved reading poems or quotes by Dr. Maya Angelou. Mainly because she’s not saying what she says by head knowledge but more from heart and experiental touches. She feels those words, has lived through some and knows first hand what they mean, not just something someone else said.
I love her “Phenomenal Woman” and it motivated one of my poems. Today, I celebrate her in her absence knowing she lives amongst us through words that time cannot erase or water down!
This particular quote shares the responsibility between asking and receiving – the Blessor, the Blessing and the Blessed. You need to ask, expect and your expectation shows via the preparation you put to receiving what you asked for. How bad do you want it?
Come tomorrow, generations unborn will wonder about this great woman and the world she captured through words. Enjoy her world with me.
