The Help

the covers quietly close
but for me it's not over
it's been three days
three restless nights
i live the story

it makes me sad
petty pride laced with mean
thin hearts--no vision
disease sequestered to black?
dumbed down

and then i rejoice
when all color is embraced
"you is good"
"you is smart"
"you is important"

I would recommend reading THE HELP by Kathryn Stockett
