I have a dream
A dream to erase labelling
With a thought eraser
A dream to render all colourless
With a fairy love charm for all colours
I have a dream

I have a dream
A dream to mash all weapons,
Like colour inks, into words
Words for discourse in misunderstandings
To spare the world
The horror of hoarding wronged ghosts
I have a dream

I have a dream
A dream for scientific breakthroughs
To kill all ills
So wombs will stop bleeding in hurts
For their hurt or perished products
I have a dream

I have a dream
A dream of discipline for all minds
To check hands which breed greed
And clear prisons with beings needed to be freed
I have a dream

I have a dream
A dream to turn the heavens into a sure route for all
And turn hell into an oven to bake wrongs into rights
I have a dream
I really have a dream
And I pray the mountains echo my thoughts
The skies collect them into clouds
And fall into all rivers and seas
Which in turn will drag them through throats
And seep into minds
For unison into hard work for realisation

  1. Nice poem. From my analysis the writer in the first stanza have a dream of erasing racism; second stanza is a dream of peace; the third stanza might be about the ills of abortion etc.
