A Tribute To Maya Angelou - Poem by Frances Jackson Johnson

Who are you
by now the whole world...thinks it knows
but...I looked beyond your public stature and
Miss Angelou...I think...I Gotcha
I gotcha smile that radiates
leaving no space for anger or hate
I gotcha love that sends out rays
your love for others...that always pays
a dividend...for the receiver
steam rolling from the giver
Miss Angelou...Glad I metcha
