Ode to Obama - November 4, 2008

I've been down this road before
Heartbroken, knocked around
The promised hope, the dreams I dared
Ashes now, dust, all gone.

Back some four, eight years ago
I believed; a foolish innocent -
One man could not destroy this land
Our law, our hallowed precedents.

No longer innocent and not naive
Do I dare, dare to believe
That hope is something to be grasped
That things can really, truly change ?

I dared. I voted for the man
With millions more, defied despair
Chose hope, believing in his plan
To make our nation whole again.

Therein lies his greatest gift
To lead us back from the abyss
Of hate and war, divisiveness
To hope again, to heal the rift.
