A poem paying tribute to the first African-American President of the United States

The world needed hope

And people wanted a change

So God sent a man

Barack Obama was his name.


He seemed to be a person

We did not know

A senator and family man

Who hailed from Chicago


He faced his critics

And displayed much tact

He proved to everyone

That he is a class act


He approached the cynics

With a sense of humor

And he had to put to rest

Many a rumor


He had lived in two worlds

Because of mom and dad

He has a cool demeanor

But never seems to get mad


We never thought we’d live

To see the day

When this African-American

Would pave the way


To move into the White House

Over in Washington, DC

We’re sure he’ll make a change;

We just need to wait and see


The surprise occurred in ‘08

On Election Day

When the overwhelming majority

Had the final say


Obama is now known

As the 44th President-elect

He gives, requires

And demands much respect


But sacrifice is what we know

We’ll have to do

To right the many wrongs

Of the red, white and blue

We’ll focus on jobs,

 Education and health

And sharing with every person

This nation’s wealth


It has taken forty years

After Dr. King

For the dream to be realized

In this marvelous thing


The world has renewed hope

In the dream of this man

Who has pulled us together

With, “Yes We Can.”

Could not ask for a better tribute with your write. You need to send this in to Obama. I am sure he would enjoy it as much as I did.


Good to know my vote counted this time and ready for a change.

I think there is a lot of stability in him, and for that I admire.
