As we come near this special day,

We come to say thanks

in our own God giving way.

Thanks for the “Dream of Equality”

for now we can stand as one among ourselves

and walk together as a people.

Thanks for the march on Washington

that’s instilled in our hearts

and made its mark for freedom.

Let’s thank God for this spiritual leader

who lay down to rest

as his job and his words still linger.

In the end, we all know

the King Dream will always ring

for the light is ever shining.

Undra Ware, Sr.
