I Have a Dream (Poem)

Updated on January 15, 2015

I have a dream to make justice a reality,

My theme for life is equality!

These words he spoke with such integrity,

It is not the color of my skin, but, the contents of my character

which determines who I am, I am somebody!

What a struggle for liberty! but, I am free at last,

It is the endurance of suffering

that substantiates the capacity to survive,

Thank God Almighty! I am free at last,

Let freedom ring, allow victory to sing

I will never forget Dr. Martin Luther King!

Quote “Mine eyes have seen the mountaintop,

I looked over and saw the Promised Land”,

“I have a Dream today” unquote.

With all the intimidation, segregation, and strife

He still took instructions from God for his life,

Your dream Sir!

Still fights to live.

      Beautiful poem in tribute this day! And the one who can truly set us free, our sweet Lord paid the highest price for the world's sins.

      Up and more and sharing.

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper
