A Black Man In A White House

By Da Poet   

Transcending slavery, surviving the hood,
education a priority, might do us some good?
I think I might, I think I will?
Old habits die hard, but this void I must fill.

Provided opportunity, given only one chance,
I had better get busy, time's moving fast.
With clear objectives, no time to kill,
Bring me your best, as I impose my will.

A Black man in a White House after 400 years,
No more whips, no more chains,
no more picking cotton in the field.

With a brighter day looming,
of "I Have A Dream" not fulfilled?
Stay grounded, stay focused, with goals insight,
Stay prayed up, stay centered, ready to fight.

" We Shall Over Come "
