The American Dream & Butterfly Wings: A Poem

Dreams.

Our mind explores them at night.

A never ending galaxy.

And creates them during daylight.

Butterfly wings.

Every butterfly has them.

Pattern unique with each wing pump and flutter.

Our dreams are equally as original and must be delicately handled.

The Earth.

A blanket or quilt of stitched land.

People dotting the ground like polk-a-dots.

America.

The American Dream.

Martin Luther King Jr.’s iconic speech.

1963 words that inspired and positively influenced in red, white, and blue.

Achievement.

Goals accomplished by the American people.

Yet, failure weaves in every now and again.

A spotlight stolen.

The question continues.

What is The American Dream?

Is it more or less?

Is it them or us?

Seven billion people.

Personal wishes.

Personal goals.

Personal dreams.

Always dream big.

Work hard.

Aim high.

Be bold.

Sole purpose.

We are the large picture.

A glass piece of a mosaic.

Hearts that beat for separate reasons.

Dreams.

Our mind explores them at night.

A never ending galaxy.

And creates them during daylight.

What is your dream?
