Ode to Michelle Obama: A salute to American’s First Lady

Black History, Poetry

Michele Obama

Michele Obama, First Lady of the United States

A beautiful image, strong and proud
Aside the commander in chief you stand
Without words you speak for black women loud
Showing our worth and purpose in this land
Goes beyond mans objectifications
Portraying us as intellectuals
Independent, faithful and nurturing
Unafraid of the ramifications
Influential, not ineffectual
I’m left gawking here in admiration
