Touched by an Angel - Maya Angelou

We, 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.

Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.

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.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.

  9. You look gorgeous! And you dont have to convert to wear the tudung. To ardzulna, i am sure daphne just doing her job as a model, so dont get too far ya? As a muslim myself, i find it offensive for you to say that. If you are wearing a saree and someone say "I hope Brahma blessed you and convert you into a hindu", wouldnt you be offended too? Think before you say anything.

    Anyway Daphne, Happy Belated Birthday. I am a fan and i love watching you on the Breakfast Show :D
