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.

~Michael

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.
