    A poem inspired by Mr.Barack Obama, the first African American United States President Elect November 4, 2008​

    I AM
    The First, but I will not be the Last
    I AM
    The Healing salve, from historical forefathers past
    I AM
    The living combination
    The Present demonstration of
    African and Caucasian can love one another
    I AM
    Many colors
    I AM
    The voice
    The choice of this Land of the Free
    I AM
    The bellowing from down bellow
    Uprising through middle passages
    Can be found in the company of High Classes
    Yes I AM ONE AND THE SAME!
    I AM
    The vision aimed, the awaken breath off the Dream of a King
    I AM
    The elected Overseer that Freedom may continue to ring, through this land
    I AM
    What “We the People” stand for
    I AM
    Peace in this time of War
    I AM
    We the People strong
    I AM
    Holding on
    To Outcries and Uproars and Demands for the belief that
    YES, WE CAN!
    See, I AM
    The first, but I will not be the last
    For the vast masses of We the People who believe
    I AM
    The planted seed conceived in a birthright
    I AM
    Guided by the Light
    Of the Hope Maker
    The Change Staker
    I AM
    The task taker
    Understanding there is much more work in store to do
    I AM
    Dedicated not just to lead
    But to Follow through
    Because…
    I AM
    The Outcries and the Uproars
    I AM
    The First of what has never been done, nor, seen before
    I AM
    The truth that YES WE CAN!
    ‘Cuz See Me-It’s because of YOU!
    I am….

    (You can hear this spoken...)

    Powerful Flow Roxanne
    I love how you laid out this wisdom

    When we do Our Destee Anthology... this year. I am going to nominate this flow to take page one. Because it embodies, something to be proud of. It holds things that have never been said. It is awesome!
