The President That Looks Like Me

Mr. President

Mr. President

A Poem by: Greg Coleman
 
Hello Everyone!
 
I know it’s been awhile
 
But since the people elected Obama
 
I’ve had no time for ideological arguments
 
Because I’ve got my reason to smile
 
A humble honorable man
 
Who truly puts his country first
 
He satisfied the desire for change
 
For which the people thirst
 
Constantly attacked by people
 
Who tried to sow the demon’s seed
 
He ran because of his love for the American People
 
Not for power drunkenness, dishonesty and greed
 
And to all who still don’t understand
 
What the majority of people see in this man
 
I guess you never will
 
Because of where you stand
 
You see millions of Americans
 
Who just could no longer cope
 
Saw in this man
 
The power of hope
 
And people who were suffering
 
Who were deep in despair and pain
 
Saw in this man
 
The potential for change
 
But the message that he brought to us
 
Is really nothing new
 
But the people at the top
 
Just seemed to have lost the view
 
Because this is the United States of America
 
Not the united states of a few
 
Many white conservatives called black people racist
 
Because we whole heartedly supported this man
 
But it wasn’t because he’s black
 
It’s because he had an actual plan
 
To save our nation
 
And serve it’s people well
 
To lift this nation up
 
Out of the depths of hell
 
So I come to you today
 
To let you know that America made the right choice
 
A people united with a common purpose
 
And a common voice
 
For Barack Obama is the first black president
 
Of the United States
 
But he is the president of all of the people
 
No matter what their race
 
He comes highly recommended, qualified, and thoroughly educated you see
 
So I make no apologies, no excuses
 
For The President That Looks Like Me
