Working on Your Dreams

MLK Day Google Doodle 2014

Drop your homework,
and pick up your dreams.
Put away the bills,
and spread out your arms.

Go outside
and feel the wind while looking at the leaves
as though they are saying, “Bring it on.”

I always visualize the light.

Stop working
and focus on
living your dreams.

If you don’t know what your dreams are,
then start working on them.

By Keyon, 6th grade
