It's MLK day,
do not let it go to waste
as we remember

In life’s rearview
Rosa refused to stand
Nelson paid the price for his land
King’s dream was shattered by a bullet
which birthed more bullets for the chocolate man
Until we said NO MORE!
Vladimir Lionter May 2020
Do you know, citizens,
Martin Luther?
You’ll say: “Yes!”
I’ll answer: “Bingo!”
You are of the Saxon khutor’s philosopher,
I am
of Martin Luther King!
He was the king but without
The kingdom
the greatest among idols.
He gifted many children
happy childhood,
And deserved
the Peace Nobel Prize!
He brought freedom
from segregation,
All races became
equal at last!
He gave democracy to his nation,
A bridge’s carrying
his name in Texas.
The world did not know
a bravier soldier,
In the field of rights’
defence’s ring!
Every state’s people’s
honouring further
The memory of
Martin Luther King!

Знаете, граждане,
Мартина Лютера?
Скажете: «Да» – Я отвечу:
Вы –
про философа сакского хутора,
Я Вам –
про Мартина Лютера Кинга!
Был королём он
без королевства –
Не было круче
тогда кумира!
Многим он сделал
счастливое детство –
Ему дали
Нобеля Премию Мира!
От сегрегации дал свободу –
Нет разделенью
в правах по расе!
Дал демократию он народу –
В честь его назван был
мост в Техасе.
Отважней не знал мир тогда
В поле правозащитного ринга!
Жители каждого нынче
Память чтут
Мартина Лютера Кинга!

deliver me the pinnacle
of your seemingly sweet soul,
and dance with me under falling coconuts;
i will finish you whole.

We've read of Martin Luther and his desire to promote race equality and individualism.Were his works worth the time or a hopeless hope of words spoken in history and an impact forgotten?

Speaking in the dark. I question myself, if Luther's dream was a reality. If day by day he worked in hope to benefit the coming black generation against any activity of colourism. Why are humans devalued due to their skin color till date? Writings of skin would perish from making sense in our generation. If his dream was accomplished.

In his dream is where I live today. I continue dreaming. Hoping there will come a generation were a dark skin man will participate in living an travel through all activities with any other tan of skin without living through superstitious stereotypes.

A dream, that a dark skin human will earn all respect in their difference and never be pulled down of value in comparison to another tan of skin

How am I supposed to explain...the pain
to someone that wouldn't lend an hear
my fear about towards people in blue....who to you
seem like heroes, people who do.....only what they have to
You admit that some are corrupt, some aren't right
but black people need to coop, you think we always fight
against people that carry guns? have all the might?
historically oppressing people of color, have been the plight
I have done nothing wrong, but still my hands I raise
heart beating out of my chest, eyes are glazed
I feel them filling up, and I'm amazed, that I feel total fear
I feel depraved, but I have done nothing wrong,
is being black, just enough to play the song, to take us back
to Jim crow and his friend, ancestors in a shack,
shackled up by their hands, feet and on their back
is the American dream, American promise,
It said I promise you can be free, I promise
but here I am 200 years later,
flashing red and blue lights behind me, light a light saber
I smile, I'm courteous, I'm kind, put on my best behavior
hoping I'm not sent to meet my maker
because I've done nothing wrong
A story of getting pulled over for a random traffic stop and feeling an irrational, heart pounding time of fear
Michael King May 2018
We contradict here, all the premonitions of old,
that as hollow men and women, we should rise,
and take into our hand a pre-existing cause,
to band together, kindred of our character.

Though we strive to be forbidden to the difference,
harvested collaborators to our unrestrained hearts,
As our spirits try to ascend, we prohibit their actions.
We are bidden, overridden, and we are ******.

Did we grip our brother’s hand when he was losing?
Did we tend our mother’s hurt when she was broke?
We deprived our very sister, to implore till she was dead,
and we refereed the fingers, which fed us until they bled.

As a single man once intoned, on a stairway miles away;
We must subsist and struggle as one great homeland,
carry our neighbor’s burdens as though they were our own.
one kin, one race, though the color of skin may diverge.

Let us not stop in our virtuous endeavor, our strong destiny,
We are Lords of the future, master and slave, there be none.
We have risen from the catacombs of supreme despondency,
have accepted the heretical pressure of a ruined significance.

The night is no longer our mission; we travel unstained portals,
those which have always foreshadowed our meager gains.
We live for love, and cannot only give earned compassion.
We must love for the sake of devotion, and the sake of bounty.

We will take the apprehension of the mother, and the father,
and we will pacify it, will comfort their woes, and they will smile.
We will teach the child to go forth into the Dark, an existing torch,
upholding what we see as the shadows of bravery and optimism.

And when the times comes, and we lay down to die in peace,
we go, knowing the world had its little exploit of freedom,
its earned hope, not wasted, against bleak souls of the depraved,
having permitted the sun to shine; smiling as we resign to fate.

The rose bush has so many roses
a choice for every person that wanders by
the one that is closest, or the one far and high?
one man saw these roses
all the choices in the bundles
he saw the one that had no thorns
he saw one with many leaves
and then he saw the rose with the most thorns,
one that surely meant destruction
if touched..
but on that morning
one man reached up,
gently grabbing that rose
not being pricked until the last moment,
for that rose had the darkest petals and the lightest ones,
swirling in a chain
that man knew he had His Rose,
and that man has a Dream
for the people of the future
to be like that rose.

He succeeded
causing anger and his death
but also a future
The Future of The Dark and Light Rose.
Sorry i haven't been on, just been busy on my new server on blockheads, called "Dragon & wolf Rp"
If you wanna check it out..
this poem is about Martin Luther Kings Jr., and basically is about how he made a choice that was hard, and actually made it there. I know it's late, was planning on doing it sooner, but better late then never!

It turned green with envy
when it saw that people
didn't need it to be happy.
