A Kid Like Me

Posted
EDITOR’S NOTE: The following poem was ready to 10-year-old Trinity Barfield, a student at Manning Elementary School, during Sunday’s Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King held by the Clarendon County branch of the NAACP at Trinity AME Church in Manning. There once was a preacher Martin Luther King He worked day and night to hear freedom ring From Selma to Montgomery he led the people In the struggle to create equal rights for all people He didn't do slime No bars denied His message is right That is in our lives

We remember his speech I Have a Dream He did a lot for kids like you and me I live in a land where dreams come true And everyone says it can happen to you Martin had a dream that he could see And once upon a time he was a kid like me Like me, like you Like you, like me Martin had a dream that he could see And once upon a time he was a kid like me!
