I Have A Dream - Poem by Summer Sandercox

Soaring on freedom's million-mile wings
Enjoying the view as Lady Liberty sings.
Peaceful and free is the world below
Until I notice a familiar foe.

It's gruesome face is showing its pride
Brothers shedding blood because of a divide.
A different belief in what was right
Led the north and the south to argue and fight.

And instantly it's no longer the Civil War
Yet the face shows something full of gore.
Tears submerge my strength within
As horror pours its soul of sin.

Adults wearing infamous robes of white
As flames terrorize the cross with might.
Vowing to torture the human race
As the stars look upon them with disgrace.

The sea of white kills simple innocence in the air
When they light up a church without a care.
The fire continues to growl and snarl, yet something faint is heard
An infants wail stings ears, as they have yet to say a word.

Time stops as the burning church soon fades
The return with words from past decades,

'I have a dream...'
