MLK JR. had a plan,

counter to many a man…

His movement tougher

by having to suffer

Saving both white and black man

By nonviolent marches he

And his associates strove peacefully…

to right wrong

In faith stay strong,

To win out eventually!

He put himself on point,

The Gospel all men to acquaint…

Christ portrayed

By progress made

Through shedding of oppression-spilled blood!

Breakfasts and parades

are among his accolades…

His family

Speak frequently

Of legacies he made.

Jonathan Caswell

It is hard for a white man to understand all, even in Christ, of a black man’s frustration. Yet, I hope and pray that this and future generations will see the light Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., advocated and spread—the light of Christ’s love— and the freedom and dignity of all men (not just the white and powerful) and become better men and women for this. —The poet, Jonathan Caswell

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
