Dreaming beyond

I woke up dreaming of community
  of our place gathered round a table
Coming together no matter our color
  feeding on the commonality we share

I woke up dreaming of a new day
  where there is no room for hate
Violence is not an answer and we
  look for the ways of peace together

I woke up from a dream so filled with hope
  it contains all the good promises
Where we are washed free from holding
  onto things which make no sense

I woke up from the dream of God
  one where people do not hunger
For righteousness, or food, or justice
  they are given freely and love comes

I woke from the dream of being healed
  there were no tears, no distress
Fear did not rule the day and we remembered
  we are all, all of us made in the divine image
