I Have a Dream

Your young shall have visions,

and your old will dream dreams.

stand there to do something.

 

Listen to the silence.

Listen to the rancor.

Listen to my neighbor.

Listen to my shadow.

 

I live life in discord;

Love love in harmony.

I stop to smell blossoms,

I pause to welcome all.

 

Wait for all to keep up.

Wait and begin again.

Wait and change the end.

Wait for community

 

We can put up with us.

We can take care of us.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
