A New Dawn

History has changed

The people born from now on

Will not know the struggle that it took

The changes that were made

The sacrifices given


And we should be grateful

Grateful that they will never know

The pain that a whole race was put through

Just to put a tick on a piece of paper

We should be grateful we lived to see it


As I opened my eyes this morning

I saw a new dawn

The sun shone a little brighter

The wind was softer

The rain not quite so wet


The road ahead is a long one

There will be twists and turns

Hurdles will seem too high to get over

But after the events just past

We know nothing is impossible

Author's Notes:
The thing that i admire most about the President elect, is that he never bothered to play the race card! He is painfully aware of what people gave up and suffered for him to get to the Whitehouse. But he made the journey on the back of his policy and personality.
These events have made the world buzz, here in England, peoples eyes have been opened to new possibilities. I wish your new President well.

great poem. i hope the all the crises in your country  will be solved. i knew your country will improve. my country (Philippines)wouldn't for now because its leaders are too corrupt. i hope your leaders will do their jobs well and serve as good examples. and sir this has nothing to do with your poem but you look handsome!

Nice piece. as smart as gouvernment is.

You are kind with your words and our new president is a breath of fresh air with a mountain of work ahead.  It will take a long time before change is evident in the U.S.  But we have made good strides and that gives me faith in humanity.  ((hug))  Thank you for this. ~Pamela

I believe Obama is the right man for the right time. God knows America needs someone they can respect in the highest office.. We just went through eight years of fascism, any way you look at it. I mean, Cheny has admitted to approving waterboarding...a practice WE hung people for after WW2...len

Being a Republican, I will wait and see how well he handles the pressures of running the country. I won't lie, he has a lot to fix here and the jury will be out until he proves his mettle!  By the way, Happy birthday John!   Henry

Absolutely right - it is amazing here in Britain to hear so many young women going about how it is waste of time voting!

So true, nothing is impossible. This is one dawn I'm happy to have lived to see. Well said John.

I had voted for McCain, but not due to racial issues...more for the "experience" factor...but Obama shows a charisma that I think the world will respond to, and he will be able to make a great difference...The "Change we can  believe in," if you will.

It's time now for the USA  to pull together behind our upcoming Commander in Chief...for a nation divided can never rise to its potential.

I hope and pray that his term(s) in office will be productive and healing for, not just the nation, but for the world and its relation to us.

A powerful and supportive write, Brother John...

After Obama was announced the president elect I went outside to catch some fresh air and absorb what had just happened and the half moon caught my eye.  I wondered if it was waning or waxing.  After reading your poetry I feel certain it was waxing, getting stronger and brighter above us.
