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.

Land That I Love

Everyone behind the counter
serves coffee
black
like me
