Fire In My Eyes

Posted by the prisoner's wife On 8:22 PM

i feel like
i've been to church
on the brink of
being visited
holy ghost
delivering a word
from the anointed

i feel like
my favorite emcee
rocked the crowd
boom-bap echoing
the cadence of his voice
exploding into head nods
& a call to action

i feel like
change is possible
if we just
give in
to hope

(c) me, right now.

i wanted to write a post. i have so many...emotions...in my belly. but nothing seems to say enough. nothing speaks louder than the truth.

FYI: MoveOn.Org is offering FREE Obama Campaign buttons. Grab one! (i did!)

    I have yet to see the speech due to me being in class last night and work, but I'm about to watch it on youtube.

    I fell asleep during the middle of the speech. Hope to catch it all this weekend.

    Hope all is well. I plan to get back to writing soon since LIFE is settling down.

    I sat watching with my family and I looked around at them feeling, that a bit of history was being made. I could just imagine a family just like ours( back in the day) sitting around a radio listening and hoping
