Climbing the mountain
It did not seem possible in 1968, when we lost Martin, and then Bobby.
Hope, and perseverance, are powerful things.
Hope that the arc of history bends towards justice, freedom and dignity for all mankind.
And the perseverance and courage of men and women who catch a glimpse of what can be.
Did you hear about the rose that grew from
a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature’s law is wrong, it
learned to walk without having feet.
Funny, it seems, but by keeping it’s dreams
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared.
