You tell me it's a dream and dreams are of little value
But you speak nothing of truth
Dreamlike qualities not grounded in reality
So you say
Cannot be taken seriously
Truth often resembles the dream
Hard to grasp, hard to hold
And often difficult to separate from the lie
Truth's value intrinsic to life lived as a free people
Visualized by the dreamer, truth may hold the greater virtue
For without it, Justice, Compassion and Love cannot be nurtured
Nor the reality of a free people sustained
