Weekend Poem: Caged Bird by Maya Angelou (RIP)

Earlier this week, one of the brightest lights in American literature passed away at the age of 86. Maya Angelou was a living legend beyond her home country of the United States. The love and respect that readers the world over have for her is only likely to grow in posterity. Beyond being a poet and writer, she was also an educator, producer, director, actress, musician, and civil rights activist. And, yes, at one point, a sex worker as well — something she was not ashamed of.
