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.

Larceny In La Russa

Lanyards tighten
around my tattered
neck
Grey and crying
out for something
new
Something that can
never replace
their hollowed souls.
