Hail Maya

In memory of Maya Angelou


Hail Maya, full of grace
Our love is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
And blessed is the fruit of thy loom,
Weave for us.

Holy Maya, mother of Guy
Pray for us seekers now and
At the hour of our depth.
I mean…

The old gods only exist
Through our faith in them,
through our devotion,
through ceremony do we manifest and sustain their blessings.

I am only a small brown woman,
With a face wet with tears.
Hear my prayer Mother Maya,
Let me rise in the spirit
of your pain,
of your love.

– Katrina Socco, AF3IRM National Programme Coordinator
