Like an Easter morning
Joy has erupted
into exclamations, sobs,
and the crisp bliss of Unity.
Anxiety and fear have stepped aside to
allow a new era to arrive.
Faces glow with the energy of peace
and harmonious sighs of relief make music throughout the city.
Just like God intended it, we live now the Truth:
The quality of a leader is transcendent of judgment and image.
Another God-given truth is manifested:
History doesn’t determine the destiny,
for an individual or a nation.
In the blessed air of a November eve
Souls rejoice and bodies dance.
Brothers and sisters of every race, age, tongue, religion
and nation embrace with anticipation.
The scents of autumn offer a comforting affirmation.
Trees drop confetti and the sky paints a promise.
Hope has arrived.
The world has changed.
