My Lost Dream

I have a dream

That will never come true

A dream of peace

A dream of love



But it can never be

And yet I dream

I keep my dream alive

I strive for it

I fight for it

I yearn for something that will never be

And why won't it?

Because of us

Why are we so selfish?

Why can't we just live in peace?

We never could

We are too stupid

We think things matter

Like money

And land

And power

We value them

More than life

Ours or anyone elses

Sometimes I cry

For my lost dream

For what will never be

I shed tears for the innocent

And weep for the guilty

For someday we will all see

But by then it will be too late
