For Dr Martin Luther King Jr

For Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
 
You had a dream
of pastures of peace
where children of all hues mingled like rainbows
 
they silenced you, but your voice
resounds now in those pastures
not yet of peace
 
and your dream is still a dream
the dream you dreamt while others slept
 
you said that you’d been to the mountain-top
and they silenced your voice just then
before your eyes saw that promised land
of pastures of peace where children of all hues mingle like rainbows
 
now your vision is glimpsed in some pastures
not yet of peace
and yes, they silenced your voice
but your spirit their bullets could never tear apart
your spirit, like your dream
is mingled with the wind in all those pastures
not yet of peace
and until we give life to your dream
those pasture of peace
where children of all hues mingle like rainbows
shall remain simply your dream
so as we remember you today
and pledge that those pastures of peace
are nourished first in each of us
for only then will your dream will take root
and blossom into our shared dream
and the view from the mountain-top,
radiant and bright and full of hope shall seem
 
where children of all hues mingle like rainbows

    If only children of all hues would mingle what a beautiful rainbow that would be.Im there with you..I loved lessons i had re Martin luther king I never knew he would be my inspiration to love coloured people more thsn i love white people like me.Colour is really just a name.Through heart and soul we are the same..Coloured people have nicer voices i think : ).Great poems..no scribbles just masterpieces.

    Indeed, Charma, we are all human, and we all love, want to be loved, feel pain, loss, grief, joy, and bleed red blood. I thank you for your kind words about my scribble dedicated to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Take care and stay well :-)
