TALKING DRUM INNOVATION

~God~Love~Poetry~Life~Spoken-Word~Night Tales~

FOR MAYA

There was an extraordinary woman

Whose literary works eludes description

An African American Queen

Whose recitation culminated

The golden dust of wisdom

She touched the world with her voice

An unsung hero that inspired the universe

From kingdom come, her words rang crystal

Divine truth became her crowning glory

Without shame, she starred life in the eyes

Fearless in her robe of royalty

That beautiful goddess from heaven

With her pen, she spread peace across plains

From sea to shinning sea

She ignited the flames of passion

Stirred the gusty dust of inspiration

And stood tall upon earthly pedestals

Touching the world with love

That undying spirit of compassion

Leaning beyond the chains of sexism and racism

With might, she sing songs of existence

Her truth was reality far from fantasy

With a heart unconcealed

She became, evolved and survived all

By the hands and grace of God!
