A Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his Time

video 
A SHADE OF MAN************  
ROOTS********** 
HOW IS****  


THE SHADOW ON THE WALL


The Shadow
of My Face
I Cannot Help

Yet
I Can Certainly
Help My Soul

For
it is Filled by
Me Myself

No
Other Can I Blame

The Reflections
looking back at Me

Like
the Shadow
on the Wall

For
it Covers
All My Being

Even unto Soul

The Reflection
of My Shadow

The Reflection
of Myself

The Reflection
of My Soul

I
Will Have
To All Face..
                               
A Poeatreeman

DEDICATED TO
DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.


MY FACE WILL SHOW
THE SHADE I AM

YET MY SOUL
WILL COLOR ALL I AM

WHAT COLOR AM I
IF MY SOUL IS BLACK?

A WHITER SOUL
I HAVE NOT SEEN

FOR IT IS
NOT COLORED
BY HUMAN GENES       

BUT HUMAN KINDNESS

BY HOW
WE TREAT
OUR FELLOW HUMANS.
