They Stood with Him

They Stood with Him

Those who were used
to standing on stage
now stood on streets
and marched.

The issues were
too important 
not to take part.
The freedom to:
eat anywhere
stay anywhere
live anywhere
play anywhere.

The ability to
walk in the front door or
sit in the audience
wherever you chose.
To be heard by
black and white alike
during the same shows.

They stood with him
until the day he died.
Then, they mourned and cried.
They didn’t have to ask why.

They remembered him
in prayer and song.
They remembered him
as they carried on.
