Yes We Can :)

I was down that day
But not out, not yet
Many had a lot to say
But I got back, you bet!

It was all because of somebody though
Someone whom I saw campaigning
Addressing to the thousands gathered
Firmly said he,” Yes We can!”

The assurance in his voice
Rang like a gong in my ear
People could now make a good choice
My path suddenly felt so near.

He had a strong Belief
That he could bring about change
People had a strong belief too
In his ability, persona and range.

He is now the president
Must have dreamt that as a child
It had become a reality now
People around the world smiled.

If he can, then why can’t we?
Self Confidence is all that we need
We must do something before we die
So let’s start sowing that seed.
