Dream Real

Dreams are abundant
All sizes
All shapes
All colors
All forms

But one stands out
Above all the rest
One I wish dearly for
One meant for the best

This dream is not uniquely mine
Many share it
Though some refute it
The day is upon us
It is important
Supporters are abundant

I dream of the day
When people can rejoice
Where sin and crime become naught
Those conservative values are kept
Enhanced and accepted
That which was immoral
Cast away by a new enlightenment

This dream I keep
This dream is deep
This country, whose benefits I reap
I pray for this before I sleep
I pray for this before I weep
I pray for just this one small peep
When this dream is realized, my soul will leap
