Maya Angelou . Yet it is only love which sets us free. We are weaned from our timidity In the flush of love's light we dare be brave And suddenly we see that love costs all we are and will ever be. Love arrives and in its train come ecstasies old memories of pleasure ancient histories of pain. unaccustomed to courage exiles from delight live coiled in shells of loneliness until love leaves its high holy temple and comes into our sight to liberate us into life. Yet if we are bold. love strikes away the chains of fear from our souls.E-mail this poem to a friend Add this poem to MyPoemList Add this poet to MyPoetList What do you think this poem is about?
