They have a dream.

I have a dream, one cried.

to subjugate and sully

the lives of all those 

who are not like me.

——

I have a dream, two cried.

to bully and bait each and

everyone who cannot be

treated in my equality.

—–

I have a dream, the third said,

to have power and control,

to be like the man at the 

head who takes all he wants.

—————

I have a dream, the fourth said,

to be at the forefront and free

myself from the shackles of

morality and dependancy.

———–

They each tread their dream

on the backs of others and 

ignore the cries of the child

and the downtrodden oppressed.

And they live fearful lives full

of lies and injustice and wars;

bringing unhappiness to their

greedy, opulent, grabbing hearth.

—————–

I have a dream, a voice cried,

where no one is less than, and

no one is stepped on and no 

one is abused, no one is bullied,

incited and no one is without.

——————-

I have dream, said another,

where each child has a childhood,

they each eat three meals a day,

they are safe and loved and 

become the best they can be.

————–

I have a dream, came quietly,

of a world where no one flees,

no one makes wars or weapons,

everywhere justice and peace 

meet together; and hatred and 

avarice are swallowed by love.

—————-

Trodden pathways of hope and

to those seeing the good in all

peace comes to comfort them,

as they seek to listen and learn

then truth will tread their path.

As they join against injustice

mercy will be their measure.

As they reach out hands to

those in trouble – then they will

find that truth, peace and mercy 

will dwell in their hearth.
