I Still Have a Dream

Martin Luther King

After 50 years

Martin Luther King’s

‘I have a dream’ speech

Still sends fire through my spine

And tears to my eyes

Even though we can hear

The music of the promised land

We are still not there

The more we beat the drums

Of social injustice and despair

It only becomes clear

That nothing will be given

That is not fought for and earned
