‘If I’m afraid at all
It’s only in my dreams.’
When the inspiring Maya Angelou reads aloud her poem Life Doesn’t Frighten Me ,
you hear wisdom and experience, mixed with childfullness and triumph.
You know that nothing can be as frightening as you think it might be;
that be you five years old or forty,
the word ‘boo’ brings with it infinite battle hardiness and chuckles.
Borrowed with fondness from the delightful Brainpickings! What would I do without you!
