I dream of peace in a world of war;© Walterrean Salley
I dream of love where hatred reigns;
I dream of unity where there's division;
I dream of equality for all men.
I dream that men could see each other
A part of this vast human race;
To recognize each as a brother—
Not just a "worthless face."
I dream of liberty for all,
And justice for the poorest man;
It doesn't matter who he is—
But that he's a fellowman.
I dream of opportunities
For the disabled—you see,
Each is important
To our society.
I dream that one could trust another
With faith that rules fear:
Not one would seek to harm the other,
Nor to cause a painful tear.
I dream of caring hands,
Reaching every race;
And all strive to make
The world a better place.
Every shoulder is to the wheel,
Each burden carefully borne;
I see men go the EXTRA MILE,
For others who are worn.
It is such a dream so fair,
I wonder could it happen here?
Could these things ever be?
Or will my dream be shattered disappointedly?
