I Have A Dream [Poem]

September 24, 2016



I have a dream that one day
My generation will find the way
Out the drugs, violence, poverty, and hate
And rise up to be something true, remarkable, and great
I have a dream that we’ll be emulated like examples
No longer will we be statistics or samples
Or dead bodies or dead beat fathers
With sons in prison and pregnant daughters
I have a dream, our families stay together
Come around the dinner table with their kids and pray together
I have a dream my generation’s recognizing
The power of hard work, a new day on the horizon!

I have a dream that we understand
Educated and successful, that should be our brand
Faithfulness and loyalty, that should be our band
We’re no longer second class, now wouldn’t that be grand?
It’s cause we rose up and now we’re making a difference
We’re unstoppable, no longer people of ignorance
I have a dream that none of us will be in jail
Rather we’ll be at the forefront blazing a trail
I have a dream my brothers start writing books
Start loving sisters for their mind more than their looks
I have a dream that one day we’ll truly love our women
Respect our women and be faithful to our women

I have a dream that we’ll come and have unity
Now that’s a true community
I have a dream that we’ll be millionaires
Who make our fathers proud and wipe away our mom’s tears
I have a dream that we showed more hospitality

that we are not killed by police brutality
I have a dream that we know Jesus as lord

And lived by his word and act in accord
I have a dream that we are people of love
People of wisdom, power, purpose – We got all the above
I have a dream that I’m not judged for how I look
But rather for my character and the path I took
They saying be the change that you want to see
So I guess that means it’s gotta start with me
So I put in work daily to make this dream come true
But hey what about you?
