History rewrites itself..

History rewrites itself…

What a historic, epic moment
There will never be a time
Captured for all eternity
That will thrill and dazzle
As today.

When a Man of Color
Stands in the threshold
Of a portal so long
Open only, so it seemed
To the Whites in color and race.

When a Man of two races
As diverse as black and white
Origins as divergent
As East, West and North
Comes to the pinnacle
Of ultimate power in the
Western world.

Will such defining moment
Help redeem the world as
It stands on such turmoil
Material as well as spiritual
That it needs a country
As huge and overpowering
Led by a certain kind of Man
To turn it right again?

And will the Man of Color
Stand true to his promise
To make a difference
To serve the world
Even outside borders
And heal all rifts and
Bridge all divides
Of color and faith.

Will such an event
Be a momentous
Triumph of the human spirit
As it strives to redefine
Itself into what is right
And Fair and destined by Fate?

Ask me later, not today
For who can foretell
What will transpire
Beyond the glory and sheer greatness
of today’s special moment in history.
