MLK had a dream, I have a few hopes.

I hope I wake up tomorrow to world peace. I hope I wake up tomorrow to a world free of poverty. I hope I wake up tomorrow where race is just a mystery, where everyone is equal in his or her being. I hope I wake up tomorrow and there is no greed on Wall St. I hope I wake up tomorrow to an economy that doesn't cater to corporate interests. I hope I wake up tomorrow free of the hate and bigotry of today. Although my hope for tomorrow may not come to fruition, hopefully, just maybe, tomorrow comes true in a parallel universe.

I hope parallel universe me stays true to his self. Staying to his passions and follows his highest joy persistently. Parallel universe me, I hope you find peace.
