I Have A Dream* - Poem by Dr. Ahmed Gumaa Siddiek

I have a dream that you would
No more rate me with the color of skin
I have a dream that you will not
Judge me in term of my kith and kin

I have a dream that my pigmentation
Will no more be the mark of my nation
I have a dream that my social position
Shall not be determined by my intonation

I have a dream that the color of my eye
Is no more a sign of any indication
I have a dream that the touch of my hair
Will not count for race categorization

'I have a dream that all the children**
Will one day live in a nation
And not be judged by the color of their skin
But with the content of their education'

* The title and the poem are reference to a Speech by Martin Luther King at the 'March on Washington' in 1963
** With little modification

    The power of Martin Luther's speech still sweeps across nations and people! You have almost succeeded in preserving the force and the robust optimism of his dream! (Report) Reply
