    In Memoriam

    Farewell The Mother I Never Had.

    Being a young woman who lives in a small country like Zimbabwe in Africa and rarely do you ever get the chance to meet wonderful people such was Maya Angelou even through her books. I was very fortunate to get that opportunity to know her through her books and poems. Growing up without a mother from the age of four years , l have always felt a strong connection to her teachings. Her death has brought great devastation but lm sure what she left here on earth will suffice.. Her book "l know Why The Caged Bird Sings' was my greatest inspiration to move on with life despite the trials and tribulations.

    May Your Blessed Soul Rest In Peace.
    An Angel, Mentor and Motivator
    the mother l never had.....
