That One Dream

One man had a dream
That dream asked us to put our preducies behind us
That one dream asked every person, balck or white to join hands and look past the obvious differences
That one dream asked for a country that calls itself The Land of Equal Oppertunity to make that true for everyone
That one dream asked for everyone to put their hardships behind them and to look to the future
A future where everyone would be treated equally and with the respect that they deserved
That one dream asked for everyone to fight for that freedom
A freedom that would allow everyone to rejoice and cry out
"Free at last, Free at last,
Oh lord, Free at last!"
