Maya


You ripped open my heart with your words.
Exposing yourself
to your bones
revealing your scars to the world
you opened the cage door
and flew,
soared into a life you forged.
You tempered trouble into strength,
misery into mercy,
loss into love.
You did not let color/race/gender
hold you back.
You did the impossible
making us believe
we too could live in possibility.
