Two wars, a planet in peril, the worst financial crisis in a century
Who still doubts
Who still wonders
Who still questions
All things are possible
It's been a long time coming, but
The answer
Is
Change...
Afghanistan
Mortgage
Doctor's bills
Conquer fear itself
"We Shall Overcome"
The moon
A wall came down
Energy
New jobs
Science and imagination
Alliances
Repair
Hope
Block by block, brick by brick
America can change.

The author's comments:
This is a "found poem" based on Barack Obama's acceptance speech to the presidency in 2008. I found that speech very inspiring and I still remember seeing it live after he was elected.
