My Dream Deferred

My dream deferred
My dream deferred
Tell me world
Is this what you prefer
Our whole lives
We have been told
To follow our dreams
And let nothing
Stand in our way
But our dreams are lost
In life's game
We are selfish
In the way we dream
We dream of all
The fancy things
When we should really
Dream of being free
Free of pain and sorrow
Free to see
A better tomorrow
We all claim to fight
To make things right
But still we
Only seem
To fight in vain
It's so insane
How little we
Seem to care
About each other
And nothing
Really seems
To matter
So tell me world
Is this what you prefer
All of our dreams deferred
