I Had A Dream - Poem by Alan W. Jankowski
I had a dream just the other night,
That people would no longer fight,
No more wars to be lost or won,
That everyone could live as one.
I had a dream just the other day,
Of streets where kids could safely play,
And treat each other with respect,
And never come to know neglect.
Where children grow in a loving home,
And would never face the world alone,
To live in comfort, and without need,
Regardless of their race or creed.
That the God we worship is all the same,
No matter what we call his name,
And honor each other’s right to choose,
Regardless of their different views.
And if my dream should ever come true,
It will be up to people like me and you,
And I dream the day should come at last,
Where hunger is a thing of the past.
For I dream one day the human race,
Will make this world a better place,
Where fighting and wars will someday cease,
And our children may know a world of peace.
