Martin Luther King


I am black and hated for that reason.
I hear cops and fireman screaming.
I see black people dying and getting hurt.
I say we will march again.
I cry tears of joy when we have won the battle
I am Martin Luther King.

I am a leader.
I want freedom.
I need more help from other people.
I hope I live to see another march.
I fear more people will suffer.
I am Martin Luther King.

I am a man with dreams.
I feel nervous.
I try to end racism.
I wonder if we will march again.
I dream for hope.
I am Martin Luther King a black man who fought for what I wanted.
