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.
