Dream-right; not Birth-right


Go, spend just a week

As a citizen of a jungle-nation

Then, you will know, what a privilege it is,

To be an American for just a day


You are an American

Graced with boundless leverage

To shine like a thousand stars

Yet, you chose to become a vagabond

Bound by the scars of a thousand orphans


You can become an American by birth

But, you don’t excel in America by birth

You rather, excel in America by dream


Freedom is a God-given right

But success is a dream-given right

Success indeed, is not a birth-right;

It is a dream-right


Without dream,

an American will end up as

A Third-World orphan

in First-World America.
