Maya Angelou

Sesame Street just shared this ...

and you may enjoy this recitation of Life Doesn't Frighten Me.

The text:

Life Doesnít Frighten Me
Shadows on the wall
Noises down the hall
Life doesnít frighten me at all

Bad dogs barking loud
Big ghosts in a cloud
Life doesnít frighten me at all

Mean old Mother Goose
Lions on the loose
They donít frighten me at all

Dragons breathing flame
On my counterpane
That doesnít frighten me at all.

I go boo
Make them shoo
I make fun
Way they run
I wonít cry
So they fly
I just smile
They go wild

Life doesnít frighten me at all.

Tough guys fight
All alone at night
Life doesnít frighten me at all.

Panthers in the park
Strangers in the dark
No, they donít frighten me at all.

That new classroom where
Boys all pull my hair
(Kissy little girls
With their hair in curls)
They donít frighten me at all.

Donít show me frogs and snakes
And listen for my scream,
If Iím afraid at all
Itís only in my dreams.

Iíve got a magic charm
That I keep up my sleeve
I can walk the ocean floor
And never have to breathe.

Life doesnít frighten me at all
Not at all
Not at all.

Life doesnít frighten me at all.

- Maya Angelou
