    Change has come
    Hope has arrived
    400 years of disrespect
    Neglect
    Has now been
    Rectified
    By allowing
    This modern day drum major for change
    To realize truly
    A dream
    That has been ordained
    Now we who have prayed
    For this day
    That shall live in the hearts and minds
    Throughout the course of history
    Whomever penned the words of the past
    That admonished us
    To hold on a change was going to come
    Was actually looking
    Into this present day
    For change is here
    A changing of the guard
    A changing of the status quo
    A change of the mentality
    Of a country
    That never truly knew the meaning of
    Land of the free
    Home of the brave
    Change has defeated the age old monster of racism
    And now we have
    The audacity to hope for a better day
    We Baracked the Vote
    And our voices
    Has finally been heard
    Thank you Dear Lord
    for the Change that you have brought
    Through Barack Obama

    many times a politician can't impact individual lives

    but at least this shows promise

    ALOT OF PROMISE

    what more can you ask for?
