What I leave behind

 

mlk2

Today I offer to the wind

my skin so thin

unsteady spine

a thought that cares

about what’s mine

A wish for love

a want for fine

 

A hug in winter

toast by fire

Today I leave

all thought

‘twould mire

I subjugate

my heart

to hire

no quarrelsome

irate

desire

(In Remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)
