I Have A Dream

Written by: Adeshina Aladeshawe

I have a dream 
I can see it so clear 
Almost like a film 
Only its not so rare 
Not like Luther' I fear 
Not whites with blacks 
In the same sacks 
Eating and drinking 
At the same table. 
My dream is simple- 
To see black and black 
Bend their backs 
And get to work 
With love in their hearts 
And hope in their mind 
To see blacks all over the land 
Unite for common good 
And secure the future 
For generations yet unborn. 

I dream of a new nation 
Flowing with milk and honey 
Free for all to share and enjoy 
A land of peace and stability 
Where hard work and honesty 
Are essential virtues! 
From the Niger to the Sahara 
Across Rwanda and Uganda 
Down to the sunny city of cape town 
All around the globe 
Every where black is represented! 
Then I will smile and say- 
I'm proud am black 
A Nigerian without apologies! 

Yes! I have a dream.
