When I'll Have My Dream

I read about MLK junior

Should have been his epitaph

But as for me and my house- me myself and I
Shall bid time waiting for my dream
Up in the mountains in skies blue
My dream shall come from

In the future, not near, not far- somewhere there

Unfortunately, he died of the liver disease
