    A True Legend in his Time

    This soulful troubadour I admire
    Whose lyrics and music does inspire
    Has unofficially spoken out
    To all the concepts that spread fear and doubt

    He is not only an activist
    But a powerful poetic fist
    That strikes out against the tom foolery of
    Those whose political statements poke fun at love

    And not the Eros love with which some acquaint
    The parameters of being saints
    But the love for the common good
    Of all humanity, the love of brotherhood

    Young and vibrant and sensational
    His words and music inspirational
    He’s picked up the torch and began to run
    In his allotted time to get things done

    So this generation has one more of many voices
    To wisely offer many choices
    To the masses of his age
    To write on History’s vaunted page

    Words of inspiration and hope
    To help his generation to cope
    With political issues that boggle the mind
    John Legend, A True Legend in his time
