January twentieth 2009
That was a day so divine
On that day history was made
People gathered, watched the parade
Barack Obama was sworn in
People celebrated his big win
The first black president of the United States
Although there had been many debates
I guess this just goes to show
We can do anything. You never know
History was made that very day
Because of one man with an extraordinary way

The author's comments:
President Obama showed kids like us everywhere that we really can do anything we want to. He climbed the mountain that stood in his way, and look at where he is now. He's a true inspiration.
