My President

by 1stPoet

A president for the people by the people and with the people
A visionary president who can see hope for all
No color or creed a divine mission plucked from the root 
Planted by "Dr Martin Luther King"
Walking in the shadow of "Yah" a reflection of the divine
Lilly of the valley prince of peace 
who has taken the mantel of justice and lit the torch of hope
Inspiration to millions of people of all walks of life
Carrying the voice of "President John F. Kennedy" 
and so my fellow "Americans" 
ask not what your country can do for you; 
ask what you can do for your country
"Dr Martin Luther King" once said; an individual has not started living 
until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns 
to the broader concerns of all humanity
Our 44th president of the people "Barack Obama" said: 
Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time, 
we are the ones we've been waiting for.
We are the change we seek.
