    Off to see the wizard

    The Dreamer King

    Was lost...

    MLK,

    Chided US

    Be still ~

    My beating heart

    From high atop

    That mountaintop

    Saw a caring world

    Gave his life to sacrifice

    Summoned peace

    He served

    Every act put on me

    To be or not to be

    FREE expressed

    Vividly

    Pictured

    You and me

    Celebrating life

    Struggle won't invite

    Loving neighbors

    On our own

    Next to God alone
