Wangui wa Goro embraces the Obama victory with a poem

AUDACIOUS HOPE

Cast aside your fears
For once,
Nervously
As on the day you wed,
Have faith in the universe
that beauty can be borne

which we must radiate

or fear of ourselves
but because
history breathes
this whispered hope
because if we cannot hope now
then when?
