Many years ago, a great man made a speech.
Standing tall and proud in front of the world,
he said he had a dream.
He spoke of racial equality,
an end to segregation.
He spoke of not judging a person
by the color of their skin,
but the content of their character.
He spoke of justice and righteousness,
civil rights for all mankind,
working together hand in hand
to make a greater nation.
He spoke of this dream
being filled with the difficulties
of today and tomorrow,
not to wallow in the valley of despair,
but work to end all the pain and sorrow.
He spoke of rising up with heads held high,
remembering we are all Gods children,
letting freedom ring throughout
every corner of this nation.
Though he has long since passed,
his dream rings true today,
in the hearts of all mankind
who want a better life.
So, lets all live for the dream,
and carry it into tomorrow,
then we all shall overcome.
