Mama Angelou I’m Sad That You Had to Go Now

“I thought, my voice killed him; I killed that man, because I told his name. And then I thought I would never speak again, because my voice would kill anyone…” after being raped by her mothers boyfriend. And MAMA ANGELOU, NO! YOUR VOICE HAS NEVER KILLED ANYONE. YOU TOLD US THAT WE CAN BE EVEN GREATER THAN YOU. YOUR VOICE FILLED US WITH RAINBOWS AND HOPE AND WARMTH. THANK YOU. AND I’M ANGRY THAT YOU HAD TO GO NOW. FUCK!
