Barack Obama!

Victory is ours,
Dark hair, Brown Skinned six one and a half feet tall,
The 44th President of America stood before us all,
With the words of hope and aspiration
Assuring us that 'America is still the country
of which all things are possible'
Many said it was impossible who didn't have a doubt,
Out of the land of Kenya and Hawaii our leader would sprout,
From a dream within a dream came Hope and Change,
The restoration of unity and strength and the name,
The name AMERICA,
For we are all one, One nation under God, indivisible,
No matter what origin, gender or race,
Barack Obama, a figure of perseverance and faith,
Even when the stars dimmed he still walked his pace,
A true leader indeed,
For through his courage and ambition,
I dream beyond the stars,
Victory is ours,
A true leader indeed,
I await for his leadership,
His government and guidance we need

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
