For The Man on The Mountaintop, A Poem


To a man as gifted with words as he was with people 
Espoused to justice
Awarded an eternal flame of                            Martin_Luther_King,_Jr.                                                            posthumous                                                                                                                   enlightenment.                                                                                                                            Though romanticized as a dreamer by the oppositional gaze,
You are our treasure 
You are our dream
You are our mountaintop                                                                                                                 

Thank you, Dr. King. May you Rest in Power ❤
