I take a deep breath,

Turn on the news,

Thinking it will be just chaos and abuse.

What I see stuns me.

A woman of power on the stage.

Amanda Gorman, that's her name.

She deserves a medal for she has reached my soul,

With the rhythm in her voice,

the expression in her motions,

Each word a sensation.

So I picked up a pen.

And began to write.

For she was my inspiration.
