Poetry: Yes we can

Updated on March 7, 2009

It doesn’t matter how ugly a house look they maybe some beautiful people living in it. With worried foot steps I walked the hood which seems to most a dangerous place to be. As I walked into this house, I stumbled onto a beautiful mind, Horace Young. He is a retired transit worker who has been written poetry for many years. These peaces below are just two of his many collections. I don’t normally feature other people’s work but I thought those two peaces were just too beautifully sound for me not to share them with my friends on Hub Pages.

Ladies and gentlemen Horace Young

Yes we can
Yes we can
Seize it, Barack!
Seize it, Barack!

      Touching poems , and they pulled the heart strings of my soul. Equality is definitely what we need and he has brought a new found respect to our nation. Barack in a way reminds me of Jesus.

      You see many people did not listen to the Lord and they called hin names. badgered him and turned the other cheek. The Lord did prevail as look how many followers their are. We have to act like Americans and stand behind our leaders not throw stones, I know Obama will prevail. :)
