Poem: The Legacy

A man had a dream

for all people

to come together as one.

He fought for

equal rights for his people.

He fought for

the right to acknowledgment,

to exist,

the right to education,

and the right to the American dream.

He pursued his dream until he died.

Now his legacy lives on.

Much reverence is given

to a man with a dream.

Those before and those after him

can rejoice

for a sign of progress

and confidence in

knowing that

if you dare to dream,

pursue the dream,

you can live the dream.
