dr king did not write a speech, he wrote a poem called i have a dream

forty four years later and the world is still a mess
the three triplets of evil are still grazing our lands and robbing our youth
i wonder if he knew
that he was not the end but a stepping stone
a light in the dark, a squeeze on the hand of a grown man
still living with the threat of violence because of his skin
I’m not sure why God allows suffering
or certain people to be taken from us
but i know that there is a plan
and that reconciliation is not so far out of our reach
Dr King said only when its dark enough can you see the stars
it was raining that night in memphis just like tonight
cold and stormy but seeing through it all,
he said i may not get there with you
but we will get there, we will be alright.
“We are all tied together in a single garment of destiny. An inescapable network of mutuality. I can never be what I ought to be until you are allowed to be what you ought to be.” 
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
