i must've made a wrong turn somewhere




i woke up this morning as if it was a normal day. but it wasnt just a normal day.... it was a new day. new days always made me happy but i knew today i had real reason to be happy. every morning i drive to school and take the same streets....always...inglewood to imperial, drive dwn two or three miles...school on the left. but this time wen i hit the corner of my school...

the huge billboard that usually has a reminder to sign up for spring semester classes had this huge picture of this man named Barack Obama, announcing him as the 44th president of the united states...and for a second i felt like i was some crazy warped time zone because this was a very unfamiliar setting....

because when have i ever seen my presidents face seem to be so tanned tht i almost mis-took him for some black guy [with a little bit a swagg]. becuase we all kno its isnt possible for a black man to be president.

its weird because for the first time in my life i watch this whole politcal process and didnt feel the difference.

my harsh reality wouldnt let me grasp the historic change tht took place nov.4 this whole time i've been walking thru life not fully recognizing...then it took one big ass picture of PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA for me to stop and finally look around and see how much different life has been and how life will be.
