"His Day is Done"

For years I wrote poetry like it was going out of style. I could fill a notebook in a few days. I had volume after volume of the poetry of others on my shelf. I haven't written any for a very long time. Poetry is something I know a lot of people struggle with. Whether writing or reading, it can be a challenge. There's this fear that you're doing it wrong. If you don't "get" it there must be something wrong with you. I wish more people wrote poetry. It can be all your own, and very cathartic.My love for it led me to have the word Poetry tattooed on the back of my neck. Poetry is magical.  

This week we lost the amazing Nelson Mandela. There's nothing more that I could say about this amazing man that hasn't already been said by so many. But, I find that the poetry of Dr. Maya Angelou always seems to say things just a little bit better. Listen and enjoy.
