2,125 notes The world has lost a great voice today. A self-taught master of the written word, Angelou also spoke no less than six languages. A traumatic and violent childhood, marked by years of silence, led to a blossoming of her artistry and her gifts. She was a champion for civil rights and justice, and on the inner circle with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In 2011 she received our nation’s civilian highest honor, the Medal of Freedom. We know now why the caged bird sings, and we release her spirit today back to the starry heavens. May your light shine ever on, Maya Angelou. George Takei, on the passing of Maya Angelou (via englishmajorhumor)

223 notes It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me. Maya Angelou  (via theandiepants)

I’m cool with text, don’t get me wrong, I’m just not doing it ALL day EVERY day… I feel like it’s a blessing to have somebody worth missing… If you’re working I’m happy to get out the way and let you grind, I don’t believe giving a person space hurts strong bonds…

قد لا تفهم الان او غداً ولكن بمرور الوقت سيكشف لك الله سبب مرورك بكل الصعاب التي مرت عليك.

You may not understand today or tomorrow but eventually God will reveal why you went through everything you did.
