Dreams, Plans, Action


From ashes to riches we all desire to rise

The American Dream surely will save us from our demise

But keep in mind your mind: use your head and hands

Because from dream to action can become your plans.

Hard work, dedication, and perseverance are the keys

Support, love, family, and help if you please

These are what will get you to your destination

They will be your start and your foundation.

Whatever you dream of, whatever you want

You can achieve it even if your circumstances taunt

No matter who you are and no matter where you're from

No matter your background: the mansion or the slum.

Anyone can create, imagine, seek, and invent

And with stars in your eyes you begin your ascent

No matter how long and how matter how far

You can and you will raise the bar.
