Art/Act: celebrate Dr. ML King, Jr.'s holiday

In celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday and holiday, let's Art/Act, create, advocate, write, paint, draw, et al, with advocacy and art in mind, or, even better, in heart. Here's a couple twigs of poetree to start us off:

 

 

A Weaver Of Life

 

Happy Birthday

To a student of Christ's and Ghandi's.

One who had a dream that someday

We'd live in the promised land and

Took us by the hand.

Yet, we won't get there

If you don't break your chains,

Refusing to be a pawn in their games.

We can't turn our back to those

Unchosen, on the outside or in,

Simply 'cause they can't afford.

We can bring them with us, if we,

Resisting, everyday, their common

Delusions, not be a link in that chain.

The chains that keep our humanities

Growth arrested, our potentials

Unexplored; our thoughts,

Feelings, and deeds flawed.

If you don't refuse

To be the chains that bind you,

We'll never break the chain.

The chain that murders.

The chain of delusions.

The chain of death.

 

 

 

YOU CAN

 

Talk the talk, walk the walk, and even

Be the be, but, if you don't vote the vote,

You won't ever be livin' in a democracy!

 

 

So, below is some new advocacy to start with, and below that, many more recent actions you can do; as many or as few as you'd like- remember, write on:
