Stacey Abrams

 

In the world  of people who take responsibility

make sure we have

enough of what we all need she is different from

white men who ruled  the difference

between men and women big question

these weeks  Stacey is more than

intelligent hers a deep back story  she can tell it

a years ago at an Emily’s List lunch

even there she wasn’t like anyone else we

all sat in big round tables eating the  lunch

of expensive luncheons  green salad with chicken she

broke through the usual  What She Would Do

with Who She Is:  confidence and capacity  she

knew what’s necessary easy to see from a mile away

and now, running for Governor in the state of Georgia

against Brian Kemp Voting Rights is a problem because

Kemp is in charge of who gets to vote

53,000 votes sitting on hold while Kemp decides this fight

for what America is right now  if there is justice

if what most of us want  most of us want fairness not just for some

if this is a contest for the soul of this country then Stacey

Abrams an African American woman from Georgia with

a plan and a beautiful smile Stacey Abrams will win.

Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.

  1. Thank you for reminding me about people who actively work for justice, who remember that we possess virtues if only we choose to manifest them. Virtues are our real super powers.
