SHOES

Try Walking in His Shoes...

Sleeping with concern, trying to Right a Wrong that Continues to get Strong…

Fighting for a People, Fighting for a Nation that appears united but is more divided because of racial attitudes that reek with disdain against equality.

Knowing people secretly and openly resent you because of what you have accomplished and because of your color…

Knowing that all your words, movements, decisions will be scrutinized, analyzed, criticized.

Not knowing who to really trust beside your wife and family because not everyone shares your vision, not everyone wants you to succeed.

Imagine the strain in his sole and soul as his daily intake is filled with enemies who deeply hate him.

There are those of us who should be ashamed for abandoning him over misguided words and mis-information that has followed him since his days in the Senate…

Ashamed that the opinions of others, who don’t really like anything colored, duped them and used them to pretend they are not racist.

His Ordered Steps We Must Protect...

He Made it for all those killed being denied Civil Rights.

He walked proud in those shoes up the steps to that White House and fulfilled the dreams of millions who never believed this day would come in their lifetime.

He walked proud against constant disrespect and attacks against his policies.

Proud against those who questioned his every attempt to Change some Laws that didn't benefit All the Citizens of America.

His legacy, no matter the criticism or the dissecting of his Executive Orders by those forces that vowed to never follow His Leadership...

Will survive the Hits, the Condemnations against His Policies and Leadership capabilities...

Before you lock on your opinion of the First Black President, Try Walking in His Shoes, knowing you sit in the Highest Seat in the Land and there are those who don't Give- a- Damn because you are a Black Man...

      Very well expressed Poetic Word Bird as you layout the difficulties our President must face daily. The image is powerful, depicting the stress of the job on his face. Regardless of one's politics, it cannot be denied that those are the most difficult shoes in the world for a leader to walk in, especially when you're the first of anything to hold that office. The significance of being the first black man in the US to hold that office cannot be minimized. Excellent piece, up and awesome.
