I had a Dream: I will Protect that Dream
I had a Dream, and in it I wasn’t
their Minority hire, the Diverse
Décor, a percentage, a formula.
But I was me, sincere and empowered,
a PhD learning everyday.
I had a Dream, and it was that broken
I wouldn’t be, lost, or without family.
The credit I earned would be mine for good.
Some say that no matter what happens to
us…no matter what’s taken away, none
can erase or defeat our knowledge gained.
I had a Dream--its old, its new, its Mine!
Whatever my Oppressors do to me,
men or women, I will protect that Dream.
