    Because I can dream
    I’m not forced into your mental enslavement
    I’m not bound by the walls of your mental entrapment

    Because I can dream
    I’m not constrained by your convictions
    I am able to elude your restrictions

    Because I can dream
    I know enough to open my eyes so that I’m able to see
    I know that I can be anything I desire to be

    Because I can dream
    I understand that I must keep my ears open to listen
    I need to hear of past mistakes, so as not to make them again

    Because I can dream
    I am not easily mislead
    I don’t believe the discerning truths I’m fed

    Because I can dream
    I am smart enough to know
    I can go anywhere I want to go

    Because I can dream
    I know that no one can ever hold me back
    I know that if I believe, I can achieve even though I’m black

    Because I can dream
    I can fulfill the life of Dr. Kings’ dream
    I can do anything no matter how extreme

    Because I can dream
    I know that I am capable
    I can do anything as long as I’m alive and able

    Because I can dream
    I have the freedom to be me
    I have the freedom to be free

    Because I can dream…

    Thank you all for the view. Yeah our dreams are our hopes, but somehow we all need to makes those hopes realities.
