Marcus, the dream is never too much to bear
even when I feel like crawling into a corner & falling asleep
or begin to think I deserve better, it’s time to reap
the words I have sown, which I now offer as a prayer
for those who have grown weary, your lost sheep.
Marcus, the dream is never too much to bear,
yet I have stopped too many times, given in to my fear
& then I hear your voice out of the darkness, from the deep
well of the Atlantic comforting the ancestors who still weep.
Marcus, the dream is never too much to bear.
