A new Path

onto a brand-new path
is difficult,

but not more difficult
than remaining
in a situation
which is not nurturing

By Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou is Poet, Author, Entertainer, Mother, Sister, Friend, and a Role Model for generations. She is a universal voice of hope and inspiration, with compassion that breaks through to the hearts of nations, inspiring us to love life, and to persevere through its challenges, and to share our gifts with others.

Maya Angelou has and will remain a true inspiration in my life, I appriciate her work, her courage, her wisdom, and all that I have learned from her.

Hi Elham jan.
Thanks for putting up a new article. I read her biography in Wikipedia and she's had quite an interesting one. She got raped at the age of 7 and then pregnant through an unknown father at 18.
She's done so many variable stuff including radio talk,comedy show,poetry,acting,directing and been a spiritual leader for African Americans for many years.
That was so interesting...
I'll read more poems of hers later.
Thank You.

Dear Ehsan,yes you are right indeed,Maya Angelou has truly been a strong woman,a fighter,I find her a true inspiration.People like her teach me forgiveness is more beautiful,grace is more victorious than bitterness and unforgiveness.

Thank you for sharing this with us Ehsan. and if you come across anything good she has written,do send it to me if you dont mind,I have read lots of her poems,and love each one of them,they are full of wisdom and can teach us young people a great deal about life and humanity.

Keep on living a beautiful life!!

Elham jan;
I want to say it loud and clear in my mother tongue:
Zan, gohareh, eshghe. Shomaha noorid.
chand sher inja khoondam:

Vaghti khanoome Angellou goft:
"Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see."
man be in kalaam iman daram.
Vaghteto nemigiram, zane bozorgvar too donya kam naboode, Emily Dickenso, Rabeh Ghozdari (zane arefeh 1000 sale pish) va khanoome Helen Keller ke shaah kareh khelghat bood. Hamishe Na binaa bood ama goft:
"Never bend your head. Hold it high.
Look the world straight in the eye".
Be khatere zan boodanet behet tabrik migam.
