Striving in Style
This chapter features a poem by Kenisha Coy.
Continually learn, know ourselves in this
polarized world, hidden truths, we felt you.
On the wings of ancestral love, Michelle
Obama arrived, our Modern Moses
Ride On, from gross, ignorant bell tolls telled,
Beauty and intellect, shade to shame us,
decadent hips and lips, Our Former First
reminded us to treat our temple well.
Humility high, fist bumps on the low
Heights like Dorothy, male dominated
stigmas shattered, family first mattered.
Designed like Ben Banneker type of flow.
Letting Our Girls Learn, you encouraged us.
Stay the course, Love rules and overshadows.
Michelle, we’re grateful and you will be missed.
