.the first black president.

the first black president

dedicated to the rose the grew from concrete

if you feel short and wish to feel tall all you have to do is jump without being afraid to fall.
soon you’ll be flying, next you will soar. good job kid you turned a jump into a dunk, and a dunk into a score.
but you don’t have to stop there. there’s so much more you could do, and don’t let anyone tell you differently because anything they can do you can do too.
they’ll say ‘you can go to africa to see how lions get food, but if you want to pet one you’ll have to go to the zoo.’
those will be the same friends who hand you a can when you say you want to taste the mountain dew, but what good is a friend who only believes in what you can’t do.
they put a man on the moon, a couple of monkeys too.
so, if you want to go you can; i hear the first thing you need to know is how to tie a tie on a space suit.
but you don’t have to stop there. there’s so much more you could do,
and don’t let anyone tell you differently because anything neil can do you can do too.
some may laugh at your belief
others may call you names like lame, strange, and insane.
but you can have the world as your playground if you tell them of the stars from which you came.
you could amaze the crowds as you pull a rabbit out of a hat.
or go over to julie’s yard if you want to dance to some modern jazz.

really anything is possible as long as you don’t do smack.
some might even call you a chiropractor for staying off the cracks and not breaking your mother’s back.
but you don’t have to stop there. there’s so much more you could do,
and don’t let anyone tell you differently because anything robert houdin can do, you can do too.
the possibilities are limitless whatever you perceive can be achieved.
a dollar out of fifteen cents can be a powerful dollar when paired with a dream.
so dream with your mind wide open, and awaken ready to pursue.
it’s really your attitude that determines what you’ll amount to.
you could be a chef, probably the best.
a first placer if you were a racer.
a firefighter when you catch your little brother playing with a lighter.
knock-knock who’s there???/ the next richard pryor.
an apprenticeship in art could make you a tattooer.
if you hire yourself you’d best be an entrepreneur.
you’d be a bum if you lived in the sewer.
so whatever you do, do until you become a connoisseur.
beating on trash cans could turn into playing in a band on the drums.
you could even be president, all you need is to be thirty-five and still fit enough to run.
just remember if anyone ask, hawaii is where you’re from.
