Maya, You Are Now A Free Bird - Poem by Hebert Logerie

African Queen, Afro-American Queen,
American Queen, Black Queen,
You are now free, you have escaped,
You are now crowned, phenomenally draped,
And beautifully coiffed as a famous Poet,
Great Lecturer, Mother, Lover, Activist,
Fighter, Doctor, Nurturer, Philanthropist,
Philosopher, Engineer of rhymes, and Architect
Of simple, complicated and powerful words,
Those are as sharp as our ancestors’ swords.

You had everything that an amazing woman
Wanted to possess: pride, confidence, elegance,
Style, bravery, wit, intelligence, humility and patience.
You inspired kings, queens, intellectuals and laymen.
You were, without a doubt, a phenomenal woman,
A special woman that men and women admired.
You feared nobody: the racist, the confused, and the liar.
You feared nothing: weather, water, sand, soil and fire.
However, you loved everybody: the sick, the weak, and the tired;
The poor, the homeless, the brave, and the strong.
Maya, you are now a free bird, please sing the song.
You have opened the cage, like a bird, you are now free.
Spread your wings to shower the world with wisdom,
Love, passion, comprehension, tolerance and liberty.
Hum again and sing again the beautiful song of freedom.
African Queen, Afro-American Queen,
American Queen, Black Queen,
You have left a phenomenal legacy,
You will be remembered until eternity.
