Revering Reveries

Revering Reveries
(posted for the A to Z Challenge)

Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee. The American civil rights leader and 1964 Nobel Peace Prize winner was a skilled orator. His “I Have a Dream” composition is often recited. In honor of Dr. King and his famous speech, today’s poem pertains to dreams.

D is for dream.

Revering Reveries

What dreams do we dare to forsake,
Refusing the risks we might take?
We soar while we snooze,
Then rouse just to lose.
Perhaps this is all a mistake.

I’d rather dream while I’m awake.
