May She Rise (Dedication to Dr. Maya Angelou)

May She Rise
(Dedication to Dr. Maya Angelou)
Above in the sky, glistening over the lives of millions,
may she rise.

Hoisted proudly in the wind,
flaring and flapping freely
in the honor of all nations.
may she rise.

Uncaged, fearless, and melodic with peace and hope under her wings,
may she rise.
Rooted from oppression,
stemmed with elegance,
and of blooming beauty, may she rise.

Out of cocoon,
dancing freely,
parading in majestic colors,
may she rise.

Like a soulful mezzo-soprano over an African drum, may she rise.
Like her joy gifted to the world,
may she rise.
Like the words of prayer,
may she rise.
Like a heart inhaled with love
may she rise.
Like her soul flown into heaven,
may she rise.
