The Warrior Who Didn'T Give Up

We think of others in times before us,
maybe days ago or many years after.
Our lives pass like a ticking bomb,
not realizing the here or after.
Passing the problems with a shrug,
we never think about the future.

The future is an illusion;
it disappears.
It never reveals the path it will take.
We can change it with just a smile or a hug
or we can pass on the problems with a shrug.
We can glance about and say, “Not me, ”
or we can choose to conquer this world one day.

The past cannot be changed;
never altered.
The future, however, can be decided.
You can choose to step up to the plate;
or back down when called upon.
You can lead a world-changing life,
or you can choose to not let your voice be heard.

Martin Luther King Junior fought for what he believed in;
he fought for justice for all.
He never gave up when his life was threatened;
never gave up when he was at a loss.
In my mind and heart, he conquered the world.
He made people think twice about treatment of blacks.
In my heart and mind, he was a warrior;
he had the ultimate courage and determination.

Martin Luther King Junior changed the world;
his voice was heard all over.
His thoughts of justice were provoked;
they were listened to and called upon.
In my eyes he’s a hero;
a warrior who didn’t give up.
