Martin Luther King

by David Reese-El

The man with the dream,
is no other than: Martin Luther King Jr.

Who fought for civil liberties;
and died for them too.

Never did he give up,
So Why Should You?

Freedom did not come
with the ringing of:
The Liberty Bell ... That was the
sign of the up-coming HELL!

Martin knew what to do.
He changed the pace
to how they: (white folks),
would look at the beatuful Black race!

He said, "Stand up, Stand Strong!'
God wants us to move on..."

Martin was a wise, intelligent man.
Who came with the plan. 
He told us to:
"Accept finite disappointment;
but never lose infinite hope!!"

God alone can steer the boat;
we can only paddle.

The man with the dream showed us all the way, 
so, let us follow our teacher high up on the mountain top.
