Touched by an Angel

It’s been a long time since I last shared my favorite poems/quotes. I love Maya Angelou’s words of wisdom. Her outlook on life and being, is amazingly captured in her poems or quotes. How do you see the outlook of life around you?

Touched by An Angel by Maya Angelou

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.
Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.
We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love’s light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.

Love – The best to happen in life.
But They say: fall in love.
– They say truly.

“One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love.”
