The Dream

The Dream
By: Ana Medina

American dream
Wealth, power, opportunity
Achieved by anyone
Or so we think.
Drive and motivation
What could stop us?
Factors alter prosperity?
Undermine the chances
Invalidate feelings.

New deteriorating forces at work
No external forces could be to blame.
Craving approbation
Rejecting true self.
Find ourselves facing a harsh truth,
Success will always be relative.
