Can You Imagine?

Can you imagine
being evicted
by a landlord
who took your land?
Can you imagine
being welcomed
only then to have
that door slammed?
Can you imagine
leaving all you know
for a better life
on a distant shore?
Can you imagine
dreaming so big,
not just rags to riches,
but a little bit more?
Can you imagine
what is only a dream
since the color of your skin
is a little less white?
Can you imagine
a world without color
where people actually
do what is right?
