Reality you thought was a dream

Uhunoma Leonard Iyahen 1986 (United States)

I am not a dream, I am reality. Don't be afraid I will vanish. I am real and can be touched with smallest sacrifice of getting on an air plane. Get the ticket, and when you hear the sounds of my cricket know your plane has touched down. When you see my high and mighty town, were other foreigners abound, and a welcome to NIGERIA flashes your sight, realize you have seen light,just like a giant is larger than ant, reality becomes larger than dreams, just like a light is brighter than dark, reality becomes brighter than dreams. When I am far away, been with me is a dream to chase. Chase me with your heart and soul, race for me as athletes run for gold, for I am worth more than pure Gold. My tongue alone is worth more than the silver and gold of earth. My tongue is real every word it speaks it means. Come oh beautiful one from afar. Let our hands hold tight, fear not for I am the reality that you thought was a dream.
