Give Them Hope: A Poem

Love spoke her mind today. 
She stood high on that soapbox and said
 She held our attention for hours and when her speech was over
 we screamed too.
 Thousands of people, thousands of us’s, set free by
 the drumbeat of her words.
 We got down on one knee and opened our little black boxes.
 We took the city by storm, finally able to walk down the street 
hand in hand
 without knives stabbing into our backs.
 We knelt by the bedside in that sterile white room
 and shared one final parting kiss.
