A Drum-Major, Martin Luther King, Jr.

' A Drum Major - Martin Luther King, Jr. '

(Rom.13: 7/Joel 2: 28)

A Man Stood Up For Courage
In A Time, Others Condoned Evil
A Man Stood Up For Honor
In A Nation's Long-Hidden Upheaval

At A White House, On A Hill
With A Country's Conscience On An Easel
A Man, Brushed On All Colors
As He Painted For His People

A Man Stood Up In Conviction
In Times of Great Confusion
A Man Stood Up For Peace
In Pursuit of Principles & Solutions

On A Mighty Mission, He Marched
To A Dream That Would Not Cease
As A Drum-Major For Justice
As A Drum-Major For Peace

'... I Have A Dream...'
Said, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Yes, A Dream of Togetherness...
Was Had By America's Martin Luther

'... I Have A Dream... '
Said, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
As He Marched To Wake The World
As A Drum-Major and Mover...

As An Imperfect, Yet A Patient Man
In An Imperfect, But Full of Potential World
Still... He Had A Perfect Dream To Share
With All Beloved Little Boys and Girls

As A Drum-Major In A Brotherhood-Band
Who Opposed The Dischords of Prejudice
As A Drum-Major Stepping To Lift The Land
and Expose The Cruel Notes of Cowardice

'... I Have A Dream... '
Spoke, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
and He'd Hoped To Help Heal A People
As He Glory - Hallelujah'd! ...

GOD's Word Says: 'Young Men Will Have Visions
And Old Men Will Dream Dreams'...
So, We Still Seek Places and Directions
Until We Reach The Final Prophecies
(Joel 2: 28 - 31,32)

But Reaching Mankind's Unity...
Requires Acknowleged Equality
and Possessions of Prosperity
For All Individuals of Humanity

And When Those Hopes & Dreams Are Actuality
And Not Just A Dream - But Reality
For In Truth and Love and Liberty
- Only GOD - Can Ensure Such Validity...

Still... The Goal & Legacy and The March
of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Yes, Dr. King's Dream Did Not Die...
In The Hands of A Murderous Shooter

But The Dream Keeps Recurring
Relayed On The Human Race's Baton
And Handed To His People & Others
Where That Dream Is Alive & Passed On...

' May GOD Bless Every Drum-Major of Peace...
