He Had a Dream

He had a Dream

Yet it's still my Nightmare...

The stares slicing

The blank faces stabbing

The uncomfortable glances

He had a Dream

Yet it's still my Nightmare...

The oppression surviving

The hurt unwavering

The want of just mere chances

He had a Dream

Yet it's still my Nightmare...

The bullets piercing

The graves revealing

The gone too soons

He had a Dream

Yet it's still my Nightmare...

The divisive names

The apoplectic diction

The pseudo banters on the news

He had a Dream

Yet it's still my Nightmare
