So excited, So elated
To watch the 57 th inauguration
Of the 44th President of our nation
On this great ML King day
We give honor to the many that paved the way
As we celebrate, congratulate, and meditate
On the progress of change that rearranged our history.
We delight in the victory, a thrill to see so many Americans
In unity working, living, playing, laughing, and loving together.
Embracing and facing the many endeavors that we endure to be free
The freedom that rings, as we dance and sing our songs.
The beginning has truly just begun, so much to still overcome.
The dream has manifest
As President Obama attest
To continue to do his best
Freedom of change is his quest
But we can all say yes as we recognize what we profess about change
It is more than physical but a mindset,
that sets to go beyond limits
choosing, moving, refusing to see any perceived boundary
we all can profoundly proclaim to help maintain the winds of change
through Love, Hope and Peace….
