When Did We Stop Being Dreamers?

When did we stop being dreamers?
We were born one– placid and free,
Oblivious of time and all we do was to ponder–
Basking under the sun, or sitting below that tree.

When did we stop being dreamers?
We were raised to become someone else,
To join the race, to become the leaders–
To sign the papers, and ring the bells.

When did we stop being dreamers?
We were taught not to think,
But walk, and talk like the others–
To be like them,or sink.

When did we stop being dreamers?
We were told not to be like them,
But I am being one now, and I am loving it,
I have broken free.
