Revolutionary Dreams By Nikki Giovanni

 

I used to dream militant dreams

of taking over america to show

these white folks

how it should be done

 

I used to dream radical dreams

of blowing everyone away

with my perceptive powers

of correct analysis

 

I even used to think I'd be the one

to stop the riot and

negotiate the peace

 

then I awoke and dug

that if I dreamed natural

dreams of being a natural

woman doing what a woman

does when she's natural

I would have a revolution.
