Everyone has different ambitions, different hopes and different wants. Each of them is unique, some old some new, but what is common across all is the ability to dream. To dream for something more, something better, something larger, we all can dream 

 

All she can do is dream

To be treated as someone worthy instead of pretty

To be looked for her talent instead of figure

To be taught to do more than look after

To be involved in something bigger

All she can do is dream

 

All he can do is dream

To come home to someone who cares

To be heard instead of being reviled

To be looked as a lover not a bank

To be able to spend just as much time with his child

All he can do is dream

 

All the child can do is dream

To be awoken by birds instead of bombs

To hear the sounds of laughter instead of cries

To play among children instead of graves

To see blue and white instead of orange and black in the skies

All the child can do is dream

 

All they can do is dream

To be greeted by smiles not stones

To be called by name not color

To be able to walk freely

To not live in fear of their neighbor

All they can do is dream

 

But for now, all we can do is dream

For a world that treats all as equals

For a world that has compassion and care

For a world that shares no hatred

For a world free of demise and despair

For us to wake up to the hope

That it doesn’t just remain a dream
