Obama Kind of Joy

A friend of mine asked my why I'm happy Obama won.
I told him I'm happy coz he represents where I'm going
That I can be anything I dream regardless of where I was born
That my skin is only that, SKIN
And regardless of my circumstances, what matters is what's within

Barrack's taught me about hope
About not letting go of my dreams
And the essence of working with a team
We all need to hold hands,nobody can go at it alone
He's reminded me there are no impossibilities
Only unrealized imagination

You don't have to play the cards you're dealt
You write your own script
Don't let the past dictate what you will get
It's all yours if you want it!

And in the midst of it all
Don't forget where you came from
A house you can replace
But you can't replace your home
