I’m allowed to dream, aren’t I?

Everyone encourages me to,

In words intended to sooth,

Because I’m so uncouth about how I hate the human race’s inherent unjustness.


I’m allowed to dream, aren’t I?

Just because of the statistics,

Just because half of the richest country in the world

Is poor or almost

And none but those prized for their talent

Leave their roots behind doesn’t mean that I can’t dream.


I’m allowed to dream, aren’t I?

Just because all probability points to me

Hating my life in ten years

Doesn’t mean that I can’t dream.


I’m allowed to dream, aren’t I?

Just because my parents will never achieve theirs,

Just because their parents and theirs never achieved theirs

Doesn’t mean I won’t.


I’m allowed to dream, aren’t I?

Just because I’ll never change the human mind like I want to,

Just because my screams are likely to go unheard,

Doesn’t mean I can’t dream of an equal utopia unequaled by all realms of equality.


Just because I’ll never have the power to change the world,

Just because I’ll never change the human race

To something more

Doesn’t change that I’m allowed to dream

Or am I?

Dreaming for an unattainable goal in my opinion is better than having no dreams at all. At least then you'd have something to strive for. And even if it's unlikely to be fulfilled, you'll never know if you'll be able to chase your dream if you never try. :)
