Tribute to a King
The Rock cries out to us today,
“Rejoice in the memory of a legend.”
Very few men will influence our country, as he.
No individual should try to be superior
to someone who so openly loved others.
You may stand upon me, but please do not
squash me or my memory.
Find comfort in being as good as he.
It is with pride that we may remember
to be kind to all people
no matter their race or color.
Be proud to be kind, be happy to be strong
in your beliefs.
be open to diversity.
Embrace change, encourage acceptance
But do not hide your face.
There is no shame in doing what is right.
We must take pride in honor
and teach those younger and less wise
what it means to be human.
Take pride in knowing
you always do the right thing.
