Michelle Obama Stirred Something Within Me

Something stirred deep
within me
when the First Lady
took her place
next to a man
who reminded us all
that we are somebody.

We are more powerful
than the clothes we wear
or the company we keep.
We are somebody,
not just because we say it,
but because we are slowly
embracing it,
voting for people
who look more like us
than the ones
we see everyday
on network TV.

Ignorance Is Bliss

Better to be hit
while your car is
perfectly still
Your body will soften
that way you'll
be ready for what
must come next
