I dream of a place
Where people are not judged by their race.
Where people think more of what they can achieve
Instead of the different things that they believe.
Where it doesn’t matter whether girl or boy,
And people are always filled with tender joy.
Where trade is fair,
And clothing one doesn’t leave another bare.
Where people are not thrown from their homes
And made to live like underground gnomes.
Where there are no fights
And there’s always happy light.
I dream of a world
Where bombs are never hurled.
I find it’s really lame
When humans are not treated the same.
That is the world I dream of.
