Martin Luther King Jr Day


Why do the wicked

Extinguish light within darkness

Where they must blindly

Make their way, too?


Why murder hope’s dreams,

Earthly souls who offer

Divine gifts which would

Benefit them, as well?


Your legacy remains, Dr King ~

We honor you, hold

Candles high…striving to

Forgive vision-seared, hate-obsessed evil.
