Dr. King was a wise and sensitive man
who preached equality throughout the land.
Whether from a jail cell on marching to desegregate
his actions were compelled by love, never fear or hate.
Judging people by their character
not the color of their skin
to the deception of racism
he refused to give in.
He preached the word of tolerance
wherever was the need
and taught by example
through many unselfish deeds.
Even in the face of danger
and at the risk of death
