I Have Dreams

I Have Dreams

I’ve had dreams
of other
places,
other places
where
I have lived.
Different
from where
I live now.
Places
that seemed
just as
real.
All we
know
is what
our five senses
allow.
There is
more
to show than we
could possibly
know.
We know
so very
little
of what reality is,
there is so much
more to
learn.
We
are just a
short time
having crawled
out of the
primordial ooze.
We
are still fighting
and brawling
amongst ourselves,
not yet
fit
for the larger
reality.
We must
get our own
house
in order first,
before
we can be
accepted
into the larger we.
There is so much more
to know,
understand.
There may be
others
out there
waiting
for our maturity
not wanting to waste
their time
on us now.
We can’t accept
our own kind
because
of the color
of their skin,
why on earth
would we accept
them?
Humankind
is on the cusp
of great technological
revolution
that could change
mankind's evolution.
We need
to move forward
on a more
forgiving plane
of existence
leaving the pettiness
of skin color
for example behind.
There is so much
more to reality.
We live
on a tiny orb
our cradle
in space.
Everything
we know and learned
in our tiny time
of existence
is just
a pinpoint
on the line
of infinity.
Ours
just one
universe,
a bubble
in a multiverse
of infinite realities
older
than our minds
can
possibly grasp.
