The False Dream

What is This Dream I dreamt?
This Dream of red, white, and blue.
Is This Dream still alive today?
Is it still clenching to the earth it once was ingrained in?
What is This Dream?
Is it poverty or tears of racial slurs spewed by hate in the hallways of schools?
Is it a job that was promised but never given?
What is This Dream?
Where are the roads of gold?
Wealth has bought the human soul.
Where is the humanity?
The love.
Has it too been swallowed by This Dream?
This nightmare.
Dreams are for better lives, education, equality.
For Happiness.
What is the price for this happiness?
One must know that it cannot be purchased.
But in This Dream, it is always promised.
This "American Dream".
