President Barack Obama

The journey with President Barack Obama on his campaign to his victorious election has been a wondrous celebration. There will be many fine poems written about this historical event. This poem is my humble offering. - Fabu 

 

President Barack Obama

by Fabu

He stands tall
against those times
when Blacks were made to bend
again and again.

Confident
to convince a nation
and this world that he will lead
well. Strong
from thick roots
the white of his mother
the black of his father.

Peace, reconciliation and hope
flow from his lips
and we believe him.
