"I'm not a smart aleck, I'm just so smart everyone else seems to think so."

Dear Doctor King,
The words you wrote,
The speeches you spoke
Are not only
Engraved in the tomes of history,
But also upon the tomes
Of my soul.

Yet though we remember
All you’ve told us,
We refuse to listen
And if we are forever refusing,
There will never come that day
That you and I both dream of
When we will ALL
Sit at the table of brotherhood
Together, without

The letter I wish I could wrote to the late Dr. King. Someday I hope his dream will really come completely true.
