'I Have A Dream! ' - Poem by Natalie Jane Boyle

'I have a dream! ' Were the words which fell from his lips.
'I have a dream! ' Were the words which collided with mine.
'Of a land, strong but small!
Of a country where children grow tall'
Though unfortunately, this will never happen,
As mans greatest fault is fear.

'I have more power! I have more bombs! '
Are the words which every man thinks.
'But my bombs are bigger! So I have more power! '
And again, our country, it shrinks.
Through creation and mans simple mind,
This world, I dare say, it's not mine.

'I have a dream, that we all shall live,
In a land where guns will be banned! '
'I have a dream, that we will all be equal! '
But this is no more, than a maybe movie sequel.

'I have a dream! ' Those words,
They fell from his lips.
'I have a dream! ' Those words...
They don't exist.

    I think the words exist but we have to work on a more positive reality. (Report) Reply
