Maya Angelou — The Black Family Pledge
BECAUSE we have forgotten our ancestors,
our children no longer give us honor.
BECAUSE we have lost the path our ancestors cleared
kneeling in perilous undergrowth,
our children cannot find their way.
BECAUSE we have banished the God of our ancestors, < ... კითხვის გაგრძელება »
Maya Angelou — The Traveller
Byways and bygone
And lone nights long
Sun rays and sea waves
And star and stone
Manless and friendless
No cave my home
This is my torture
My long nights, lone
Maya Angelou — Harlem Hopscotch
One foot down, then hop! It's hot.
Good things for the ones that's got.
Another jump, now to the left.
Everybody for hisself.
In the air, now both feet down.
Since you black, don't stick around.
Food is gone, the rent is due,
Curse and cry and t ... კითხვის გაგრძელება »
Maya Angelou — Song for the Old Ones
My Fathers sit on benches
their flesh counts every plank
the slats leave dents of darkness
deep in their withered flanks.
They nod like broken candles
all waxed and burnt profound
they say 'It's understanding
that makes the world go round.'

Maya Angelou — The Rock Cries Out to Us Today
A Rock, A River, A Tree
Hosts to species long since departed,
Mark the mastodon.
The dinosaur, who left dry tokens
Of their sojourn here
On our planet floor,
Any broad alarm of their of their hastening doom
Is lost in the gloom of dust and ages.

Maya Angelou — The Week of Diana
The dark lantern of world sadness has cast its shadow upon the land.
We stumble into our misery on leaden feet.
Our minds seek to comprehend the unknowable and our hearts seek to
Measure a tomorrow without the Sunshine Princess.
Her hands which had held bright tiaras and ... კითხვის გაგრძელება »
Dolores Dorantes — Second life
They won’t find us anywhere other than in the unexpected passageways of the mind.
This place is hot.
This place you’ve gotten yourself into is hot.
We are hundreds of girls.

Dolores Dorantes — We all want you to keep us alive.
We all want you to keep us alive.
We want you to hold us at a boil. For you to say yes and then some.
For you to command us, get out and show me your tongues.
We all want you to redden us. For you to cut across us.
We want to receive the blow of your tongue and lose ourse ... კითხვის გაგრძელება »
Dolores Dorantes — Close us
“7.-Close us. Destroy our mouths. Enter.
Torture us in other realities.
Take us with your mind and your word.
Bring us to our knees. May your gust of birds pass over us.
Convert us in a sky cut across by branches.
Capture us by the throat as you would with animals. ... კითხვის გაგრძელება »
Dolores Dorantes — Branches
“6.-Branches. Branches crossing the air. Branches cutting the air. Cutting across the interminable skin of sky. Lashing the sky. Of us all you have is shreds of sky, fervor. We are shreds. Live parts of a tree. Goldwork applied painfully onto the air, the skin of air is what you have. The blue flesh ... კითხვის გაგრძელება »
