Nation of Broken Dreams


We are so focused on teaching our young people to dream that we forget to teach them how to reach these things

Hope and beliefs will only get you so far and education is merely the step to help you reach the bar

Once you unleash a child's imagination it is your responsibility to ask "now how will you get there"

For you see this is not crushing a child's dream oh no to the contrary my deary

This is making their dreams become realities because honestly nothings more scary

Than Awaking From a dream to to see that it was all a figment of your imagination

And that because you know naught how to turn your dreams into your destiny

You will forever and always be just another disenfranchised being

In this nation of broken dreams.
