A Moment Of Silence

I wrote this poem in memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. yesterday. Today marks 30 years of Michigan State University recognizing Dr. King and his legacy. We’ve made a lot of victories in those thirty years, but we have a lot more victories to come. The road ahead doesn’t have an end, but many victorious victories lie along it’s route.
A moment of silence A moment of silence With one camera flash, the picture reminded us of A fist clenched tight Eyes wide open Attention is focused Barriers were broken So much love Replaced so much hate A dream stopped short, We lose another great A moment of silence A moment of silence With one gun blast Fills the world with violence Rest in peace Dr. MLK Jr. We can't sit idle, your dream is our future
