Maya Angelou

I never understood the pull of her poem till a few days ago when I made my first successful attempt to look up. People will cause you immense pain. But when you accept that pain, and there is no shortcut on how do that — I had to try for years unendingly and was lucky to have the help of many friends, there is an intense sense of weightless freedom and a great sadness, because for the very first time, you have a panoramic glimpse of the ocean of your grief and frustration and resentment.
