I Have A Dream - Poem by Jack Smith

can dreams define a person?
can they tell you a story about him?
can they bare his soul and lay it open?
show what it's like to be the man he is?

can dreams define a person?
can they reveal the one he longs for?
show his conquests and the tears?
describe what he's been through and where he's headed?

can dreams define a person?
can they tell you his burdens and his heartbreaks?
can they show his strength during his pain?
or his fragility during his triumphs?

can dreams define a person?
show you his passion for life?
or his desire for excellence?
can they tell you his visions for a glorious tomorrow?

can dreams define a person?
do they mean what they mean?
if so, are they meant to be?
if not, why do they define me?
