Dream of a Land

By: Anahita Akhavan

 

Today,

I’ll pray for King.

Today,

I’ll learn to dream.

I’ll dream of a land,

where the air’s the right of every human. 

I’ll dream of a land,

where all children hold each other’s hands.

 

I’ll dream of a land,

where all people smile with their eyes.

I’ll dream of a land,

where the light of forgiveness always shines.

 

I’ll dream of a land,

where hearts are the mirrors of truth.

I’ll dream of a land,

where there are no “us” or “them.” 

I’ll dream of a land,

where there’s no “right” or “wrong.”

I’ll dream of a land,

where there’s no “good” or “bad.”

I’ll dream of a land,

where there’s no “west” or “east.”

I’ll dream of a land,

where we’re all connected to the same bridge.

 

I’ll dream of a land,

where all dreams can become realities.

I’ll dream of a land,

where everyone lifts up each other’s hands.

 

I’ll dream of a land,

where humanity is the language of “love.”

And, only for love, we all learn to love “this wonderful life.”
