better than Dr. Maya Angelou herself???  See the below YouTube where CBS interviews Dr. Maya Angelou on the subject of the power of words soon after the Imus blunder.  Perhaps, others should watch this as well to learn a little bit more about the Power of their Words and take their actions to heart to improve their lashing of words.

I have been wracking my head trying to find the perfect words to say to you all this week as one that had been an ordained Deaconess, although I know that no words can truly substitute for what you are feeling today and for the next few months. Then I remembered tonight a poem, from one of my heroes Maya Angelou, that I used in a Toastmaster’s Speech after my husband died. May it please having meaning to you as well while sparking the road to recovery from this great tragedy.

LIFE DOESN’T FRIGHTEN ME

~ Maya Angelou

 

Shadows on the wall

Noises down the hall

Life doesn’t frighten me at all

Bad dogs barking loud

Big ghosts in a cloud

Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

 

Mean old Mother Goose

Lions on the loose

They don’t frighten me at all

Dragons breathing flame

On my counterpane

That doesn’t frighten me at all.

 

I go boo

Make them shoo

I make fun

Way they run

I won’t cry

So they fly

I just smile

They go wild

Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

 

Tough guys in a fight

All alone at night

Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

 

Panthers in the park

Strangers in the dark

No, they don’t frighten me at all.

 

That new classroom where

Boys all pull my hair

(Kissy little girls

With their hair in curls)

They don’t frighten me at all.

 

Don’t show me frogs and snakes

And listen for my scream.

If I’m afraid at all

It’s only in my dreams.

 

I’ve got a magic charm

That I keep up my sleeve,

I can walk the ocean floor

And never have to breathe.

 

Life doesn’t frighten me at all

Not at all

Not at all.

Life doesn’t frighten me at all.
