Street Lights

My Favorite Quotes From Becoming, By Michelle Obama

Jade M.Wong

Forget the politics. Forget if you’re red or blue or a different color altogether. Becoming, by Michelle Obama speaks to the part of us that’s beyond that, to the humanity at our core. This is not so much a book about being a Former First Lady of the United States, but much more so a book about the incredible and inspirational story of a girl who could have been (and could still be) any of us—a girl who grew up not having much, who faltered and second-guessed herself, and who took the long way ’round to live a remarkable life.

I took my time reading this book, letting myself cry when a particularly poignant moment washed over me, pondering the existential questions Michelle asked herself (and in extension, us), and re-reading portions that encouraged me to reflect on my own self.

Polaris

Megha's World

“Ignorance has always been the weapon of tyrants; enlightenment the salvation of the free.”
—Bill Richardson

My crestfallen soul
roams around
with a dejected look
waiting to get entwined
in your white moon
with pure serendipity
That dark cumulus
clouds
blocks my way and
tries to steer me away from
the path to redemption
and pushing me
in the deep abyss of
pain and hunger
I’m so drawn towards you
pushed and shoved by my feelings
trampled by my thoughts
unable to
walk even a step
getting crushed in this
stampede
staggering on broken feet
in this mass exodus
I run blind
with light stuffed in
hallowed eyes
hanging from my sockets
and bent back
and bony fingers
I’m running towards you;
slowly and surely
I’m running towards you,
My Polaris.
