Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr.
 
Your deep voice still hangs in the air,
Melting the cowardly silence.
You are the one standing solidly there
Looking straight in the face of violence.
 
You are the one who dreams
That this nation will honor its creed.
You are the one who steps forward.
You are the one to bleed.
 
You are not one but many
Unwilling to cower or crawl.
You are the one who will take no less
Than a world that is just for all.
