that dream

i have a dream

he spoke with 
enough passion and truth 
to speak through the 
the ages

i have a dream

and his dream 
is still 
the pushing 
and nudging
of what could be
of what should be

a dream

that depends on you
and me to speak and live

and so 
i claim the dream 
as my own

and with the same
hope and expectation 
i will wait for the day
senseless prejudice 
and injustice

he had a dream
and now 
the dream 
is ours to speak 
and live
