It's not just a man

it's a woman—
but more than that    
a woman of color
   
    
It's transgender, gay    
lesbian, or bisexual;    
it's Asian, Natives:    
American, Alaskan, Hawaiian      
and Pacific Islander;    
it's Indian, Latino    
Hispanic, Black  
and more women    
than any other cabinet    
the history of America had    
     
It's not just a man    
we celebrate today    
nor put our faith in—    
     
it's balance, equality    
one nation, indivisible    
with liberty and justice    
regardless of what god    
you serve
, for all—ALL    
     
because we're tired      
of the divisiveness    
white supremacy sows    
   
The time has come      
for unity and love—    
for the melting pot    
of America to become    
what it should
