YOUNG POET FEATURE - Gina Johnson


I SLEEP AND DREAM

Every night I lay down my head

After I say my prayers

By the foot of my bed


I close my eyes

To dream all night

Hoping my brain complies


I dream of what the future will bring

And hope it comes true

Wanting to be everything


I hope the world gets better

For me and other kids

That we don’t end in the gutter


I dream of the adults making change

So we aren’t left alone

In a place we find strange


I wake in the morning

Still wanting the dream

Hoping real life isn’t the warning


I love writing. Every day I wish I could write poetry but my school would probably not like it. I hope to someday make a difference with my words. I hope you like my poem about dreaming
