    A Birthday of A Afro American (KING)

    This man stood up strong, fearless and tall
    He did this action for one and all
    There was a premonition that he had , which he called his dream
    This was to him what he thought or this may have been what it seem

    He was a man that refuse to be treated as anything less
    The refusal of being considered second best
    There were some who put stumbling blocks ,such as crosses  were burning
    He knew of the many things that certain people were going thru as well as yearning

    He had the respect and admiration from followers of many
    This was done by quite a group but there were some who would not give him any
    His dream was fullfilled in such a treacherous way
    His Country refused to acknowledging his birthday but we got it recognized anyway

    On January the fifteenth , this day will be acknowledged by all
    Let them be white, black and all colors of the rainbow to recall
    This man tried to eliminate racism and any kind of hate
    He got the wheels to turning even though he knew his fate

    It was a celebration of an Afro American King
    The young and old knew what day really had  come to mean
    Oh, there were many who tried to erase his vision as well as his Dream
    We had to get them to remember his day, Here's to you
                      " Dr. Martin Luther King"

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
