Obama!!!!!

The news leaks first
and then pours
the tears are in everyones' eyes
and screams of triumph
in the streets
and we are not a race
but a country
as the white flakes last on my lashes
and drip down my cheeks
loved ones call
who used to say
"bi racial children will be picked on"
they were right
and now one has the power
to defend
to protect
to lead.
