From Dream to Reality

by Memphis Vaughan, Jr.

From the blast of reality 
That awakens me from the nightmare
That has lasted almost 8 years
Of a nation that had lost its way

This new reality is not a wisp of dreams
Although it seemed that way on that November night
When the nation spoke loud and clear
That once again we could stand strong

From ‘neath my mind’s eye
I can see the change that gives us hope
For together we can…yes, we can
Forge ahead into the vision that makes us great

A leader wrote a new chapter in our history
Upon the shoulders of those who paved the way 
With their blood, sweat, and tears
We pray that he will make the dream a reality
