MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. POEM
Dr. King, one of the most influential black leaders
Was born to a minister and a teacher of school.
Educated to where he earned his P.H.D.
Becoming a pastor marching against what was unfair and cruel.
Leading a boycott to protest bus segregation
As he preached and marched for freedom for all
He was jailed, threatened, spat on and beaten
As for peaceful demonstration he would call.
Marching to Washington, In 1963
Voicing concern for the plight of the poor.
Soon there after, he was killed by a sniper
In Memphis, supporting workers rights and more.
Dr. King will be remembered down through history
With words for all to prayerfully remember.
To be judged, not by color, but by character
Shunning violence never to surrender.
By Soldier For The Lord
