Inspired by President-Elect Obama's Acceptance Speech, November 4, 2008.
(Can be sung to the tune of "She's Comin' 'Round the Mountain)

Can I have all that I need?
Yes I can!
Can you have all that you need?
Yes you can!
Can we have all that we need?
Can we be poverty free?
Can we have all that we need?
Yes we can!

Can I surrender all my fears?
Yes I can!
Can you surrender all your fears?
Yes you can!
Can we surrender all our fears?
Can serenity be here?
Can we surrender all our fears?
Yes we can!

Can I begin to heal?
Yes I can!
Can you begin to heal?
Yes you can!
Can we begin to heal
and United dare to feel?
Can we begin to heal?
Yes we can!

Can I realize my dreams?
Yes I can!
Can you realize your dreams?
Yes you can!
Can we realize our dreams?
Life is much more than it seems.
Can we realize our dreams?
Yes we can!

Can I transform my whole world?
Yes I can!
Can you transform your whole world?
Yes you can!
We can transform our whole world
in a Global Heart encircled.
We can transform our whole world.
Yes we can!

Overflowing Blessings,

Vicky Bowker Jeter

Great Vicky. Yesterday was one of those days I think a lot of people in the rest of the world felt like they were Americans too. Nice piece. Malcolm Watts

I sure hope so. Being that my twin sis and I are living on less than $240.00/month (for two people, my VA disability), it's been a rough road to hoe ... I pray that Barack Obama can bring this nation back together. I pray that he will get the help he needs, with these troubled times and two wars. I pray for his safety, and ours. He sounded grateful and amazed: he is a poet, with words. As are you, with these excited words. Well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
