Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Determination

won’t you celebrate with me

Lucille Clifton, 1936 – 2010

won’t you celebrate with me

what i have shaped into

a kind of life? i had no model.

born in babylon

both nonwhite and woman

what did i see to be except myself?

i made it up

here on this bridge between

starshine and clay

my one hand holding tight

my other hand; come celebrate

with me that everyday

something has tried to kill me

and has failed.
