A Sonnet: Let the Sun Set on Hatred

I was just thinking about something poignant I could post in honor of MLK day, and then the talented and beautiful Brenda posted this on her blog “Friendly Fairy Tales” and I think it is more apropos and more beautiful than anything I could have thought of right now.
Here’s to Martin Luther King Jr. and to us all, who walk in his wake.
Stay Blessed

Friendly Fairy Tales

We are all children together looking for answers,
Cheered by beauty, gymnasts, athletes or dancers.
We look for family, love or a release to our pain,
For food, comfort, or shelter from fear and distain.
We are all alike: blessed by every sunny day, 
Then cast down by ice storms and endless gray.
