Miss Maya

30 May


it was a shock
to read the news

and I felt a momentary sense of loss
when I understood
that she had passed
moved on
left this place
we call Earth
and Home

now I feast upon those words
she spoke
wrote down
proclaimed to the world
of her life
all of it
laid out so carefully and honestly
in full disclosure

what a true warrior she was
never holding back
standing so beautiful and proud
in her nakedness
exposed and raw
as she bravely moved on
in spite of
or because of
the strength and wisdom
found in everything
born of everything
that stepped upon her path

what if any one of us
could know a fraction
of that unfailing courage
have such faith in ourselves
the will to move on
and the peace that is found there

I am far from that place of bravery
