I HAVE A DREAM

image

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

II
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

III
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

IV
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

V
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

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)

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.
