Take the eyes into account
The ones submerged in tears of doubt
Envision their life, what they're about
Notice nothing comes between the skin and bone
Although others surround, they fight alone
Regard the cries, voices, and cheers
Of past loved ones who they held dear
Observe the crimes against them, their government's so unjust
Already unfortunate, justice is a must
Journey through their past, let it never die
Instead overcome it, revive them to fly

Emit roots through a minuscule seed
Grant them with nutrition they need
Flow with the river through an exsiccated valley
Drench their stomachs through their throat alley
Wander with nature, restricting excess storms
Unite every person, show equality is norm
Create a utopia illustrating a home that is warm
Establish a society where learning is indigenous
Teach more that their instincts to strive in the wilderness
Assist those known in need and others unaware
For all they may require is to know someone's there
Beat with their heart and dreams out of range
Present yourself as a gift of everlasting change

It is the same format as Edgar A. Poe's poem a Dream within a Dream
