Barack OBAMA…08

Collectively we watched his-story being made
As a black man turned from prisoner and slave, decade after decade…after decade

The president of the United States…Of America…

No color just sound
No chains…but freedom…

His-story and Her-story will be told and not only about how a nation was sold
Separated, hung, raped, hosed down beaten and spit in their faces
And told to take their places…at the back of the bus

The revolution done been televised…and will continue to be
Even before and after a King having a Dream…

No color just sound
No chains…but freedom…

To the young with no one to look to for strength and courage
For the young person afraid of the world and its gifts
For the old caught up in past myths
Watch how the tide shifts…it shifts
To the oppressed, distressed and confused
Torn, worn, beaten down and misused…

The revolution done been televised…

Your skin my skin…
Black or white is the only thing written on between pen and paper,
Your life my life…
Black or white is the only thing written on between pen and paper,

No color just sound
No chains…but freedom…
…and the country knew, we needed him… we needed him…

…BARACK… (The Vote)

No color just sound
No chains…but freedom…

to have hope…to have something to believe again…cause we had been spent to the red white and blue matter of having to circumvent… and air our dirty laundry all over this great country…with the call for a stimulus…check one two check…one selves to find the sum of reason…

Reasons why we as a people must come together… come together,

No color just sound
No chains…but freedom…

…And oh it rings... it rings,

No color just sound
No chains…but freedom…

Has been and will continue to be televised and collectively
We are the revolution…

Barack 08
Barack by Judy Konos

I have very few friends since I stood up for you,
because I believe in the things that you do!
I feel the justice you're determined to bring
And you never exclude, not one living thing!

When I walk through my halls and glance at the walls,
Your photo assures me you're there,
As you look down and smile like a frolicsome child
I know that you really do care!

You're my feeling of happiness that comes from within
The first time I heard you ...I knew you were friend
You are the very best President America has had
And far more important, you're such a great dad!

May God keep you safe tucked under his wing
and continue to guide you to do the right thing
Just know that we "feel" your struggles each day
And if you need help..... I'll be right on my way!
