Words to proke thought on this day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day. January 19, 2008.

Elements of Man

My soul preached to me and showed me that I am neither more than a pygmy, nor less than a giant.

Ere my soul preached to me, I looked upon humanity as two mean: one weak, whom I pitied, and the other strong, whom I followed or resisted in defiance.

But now I have learned that I was as both are and made from the same elements. My origin is their origin, my conscience is their conscience, my contention is their contention, and my pilgrimage is there pilgrimage.

If they sin, I am also a sinner. If they do well, I take pride int their well doing. If they rise, I will rise with them. If they stay inert, I share their slothfulness.

Kahil Gibran

Sleep, sleep tonight
And may your dreams, be realised.
If a thunder cloud passes rain
So let it rain, rain down on he.
So let it be.

Sleep, sleep tonight
And may all of your dreams, be realised.
If the thunder cloud passes rain
So let it rain, let it rain
Rain down on he.

(Paul Hewson c.1987)
