    Ya many marchies
    ya dream of peace
    continue a battle
    in our very own streets

    we shell ova come some day!

    from da shoreline of seas
    da struggle 4 peace
    inside dis life we stand

    we are not afraid

    as we vow in yo honor
    a KING a man who
    understand
    da Father wit wise plans

    we dance dis very day
    coz ya wisdom posed
    a hoilday celebration
    of knowledge for peace
    as many millions still walk
    to the beat u preach
    ya many speechies
    lay on my mind

    surely we all will see da
    promise land

    our eyez seen da glory
    of da coming of da lord

    in silent wingz u glaze above
    stain hearts wit beautiful love
    in memories of one's KING

    we remember ya smiling glow
    like a pearly diamond ring
    Happy Birthday to ya
    Happy Birthday!! MARTIN

    MLK......I HAD A DREAM !:heart:

    Thanks ......poppin' keyz too fast

    our honor he so walked miles
    our honor he so was jailed
    yet he continue to speak freely
    for what peace and togetherness
    so shell be one day!!

    now we must not let his living be in vain...
