About the Poem

I wrote this poem after thinking about what things in this world were most important to me and what I wanted to tell my 3 nieces and 1 nephew were most important to me in this life.

It’s a poem about hope and vision of a future where people are judged, as Martin Luther King Jr. Said "Not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." So it was inspired by the "I have a Dream" speech, but also by John Lennon's song "Imagine."

This book will be a complete Illustrated book for Children, due out in June of the year 2000.

My Dream

Where the mountains touch the sky

Where poets DREAM, where eagles fly

A secret place above the crowds

Just beneath marshmallow clouds

Lift your eyes to a snowy peak

And see the soon- to- be we seek

Whisper DREAMS and let them rise

To the mountains old and wise

Climbers climb, it's time to try

Where the mountains touch the sky

Take me there. Oh take me now

Someway, Someday, Somewhere, Somehow

Where the ocean meets the sky

Where mermaid dance and seagulls fly

A place in DREAMS I know so well

The sea inside a single shell

Far across the living sea

A pale blue possibility

Beyond the castles made of sand

Tomorrow in a small child's hand

Only DREAMERS need apply

Where the ocean meets the sky

Take me there. Oh take me now

Someway, Someday, Somewhere, Somehow

Where the forests reach the sky

Men are equal and doves still fly

No thorns of war, a perfect rose

This is where the green grass grows

Out beyond the crystal stream

Like Dr. King I have a DREAM

Imagine such a goal in sight

For red and yellow, black and white

Whisper now, let the DREAM begin

It's time to trust the truth within

This is where we seek and find

A gift in being colorblind

Dream on Dreamers, hopes are high

Where the forests reach the sky

Take me there. Oh take me now

Someway, Someday, Somewhere, Somehow

Now, listen close, the future calls

"Build your bridges and tear down walls! "

For time has taught and so it seems

Realities are born of DREAMS

Hey Todd... My name is Robert, I´m 22 years old and live in Sweden where I study at Vaxjo University... I tumbled into this page by mistake actually, but as I enjoy reading poems, I kept on looking.... After a while I read your poem "My Dream" and I think its one of the most beautiful poems I´ve ever read. I really think you´ve captured what its all about. The world right now really hasn´t come that far since Dr. King made his famous speech. I want to thank you for sharing your thoughts and giving me something to think about. The world needs more people who really see where this world is heading, so that one day we maybe can change it and open peoples eyes. Where would we be without love and understanding in this cruel world. So I salute you and continue hoping for the "colorblind world" that one day maybe dare to look beyond the shell that the color of our skin provides and in to the temple which lies beyond and inside
Edie

I am touched by the reality of the words. They hit so close to my heart, to someone very dear and special. I to am a dreamer and somewhat a writer although I keep my writings to myself I enjoy the readings of these fine writers.
