I wish it were true for me too…

„Life doesn’t frighten me at all”, a poem for children by Maya Angelou. An audio exists with it read by the author. 

The 1993 gem Life Doesn’t Frighten Me, conceived and edited by Sara Jane Boyers, pairs Maya Angelou’s simple, strong words with drawings by legendary artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, whose signature style of child-like fancy and colorful emotional intensity offers a perfect match for Angelou’s courageous verses.

Shadows on the wall
Noises down the hall
Life doesn’t frighten me at all

Tough guys fight
All alone at night
Life doesn’t frighten me at all

Panthers in the park
Strangers in the dark
No, they don’t frighten me at all.

Don’t show me frogs and snakes
And listen for my scream,
If I’m afraid at all
It’s only in my dreams.

Life doesn’t frighten me at all
Not at all
Not at all.
