Treasure Island


(10-10-55 / South America)


Chosen while yet in his mother's womb
no one knew who he would become
A combination of black and white
with roots from Africa and the U.S
born to save this nation from doom.

Quietly God was grooming and preparing him
for the battle ahead
from community work to senator
little did he knew that in the White House
he would have his bed

A balanced individual in all aspect
physical, intellectual and spiritual
when he speaks, wisdom flows as though
from a fountain within
A man who in a short period
we have grown to love and respect

He has an aura and such charisma
one who captivate, inspire and motivate
has gained the trust and hearts of all
both here and abroad
thats our President OBAMA.

One who generated an atmosphere of
unity and love
'Yes we can ' if we put our differences away
join hands together and work to bring back
this country to its feet
lets pray that the continued guidance
and protection be upon him from the one above.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
