Touched by An Angel

Touched by An Angel

by Maya Angelou
We, unaccustomed to courageexiles from delightlive

coiled in shells of lonelinessuntil love leaves its high holy templeand

comes into our sightto liberate us into life.

Love arrivesand in its train come ecstasiesold memories of pleasureancient histories of pain.

Yet if we are bold,love strikes away the chains of fearfrom our souls.

We are weaned from our timidityIn the flush of love's lightwe dare be brave

And suddenly we seethat love costs all we areand will ever be.

Yet it is only lovewhich sets us free.
