Freedom’s Fire


A Sonnet In Memory Of Dr. King, And In Tribute To President Obama
The Contagion of freedom’s fire
Lights a nation with promise of a dream
Hope and opportunity,each mans’ desire
Is it as elusive as it would seem?

For one man’s dream, so long ago denied
His sweat and blood,a living sacrifice
Equality, peace,and justice he cried
With a voice,so kind yet he paid the price

A nation stifled by rancor and hate
Rose up to embrace tolerances’ face
A new dawn arose,it’s never too late
As our nations ‘leader takes his place

With every breath,let love and justice ring
For all are brothers,in freedom we sing
