The Ballad of Unity

Dedicated to Mother Emanual A.M.E. Church

Charleston SC

When I stand alone

I cannot hear the music

but when instead I hold your hand

the lyrical voices of freedom, hope, love and peace

make my heart soar!

  2. Martha, you’ve beautifully honored the dear Christians in SC but in a few lines encompassed the whole Body of Christ. Thank you. I’ll highlight this on the Christian Poets & Writers blog – May God continue to bless you and your lovely and powerful poetry.
