"I am dreaming to change the world": Members of LitClubs in Kibera, Kenya added some of the amazing new lines of our poem

Tell me what you care about, ask me who I am

Tell me where the future lies, look into our hands

You are the inspiration, to a world so in need of you,

Fascinate them with expressions of wondrous words anew.


Tell me of your passion, tell me of your heart

Tell me what you'll share, tell me what's your part

Show me where you're going, show me how you'll fly

Show me where you're heading you can do it if you try.


Dreams of helping others? Reaching out your hand?

Dreams of building bridges? Help me understand.

Tell me what you're doing, tell me what you see

Tell me what you're living, tell me what you need.


Speak out loud for all to hear, so those who will listen can set free their fear.

We all live here on Earth together

With arms outstretched, reach for the bright star above.

Together we will find a way; together we will reach the stars


Tell me your dreams, and tell me your sorrows

Tell me why you're crying, tell me why you fear

Tell me why you're hating, tell me why you cheer

I miss my grandmother's blue, blue eyes.

I wish for the magic in her eyes to stay with me and our children and their children, always.


I’m missing those who’ve gone from me, though they feel so near

I’m missing doing lots of things when I live in fear

I’m dreaming of a better world where what we do is care

I’m dreaming of a fairer place where everyone will share


Live using your senses

Guard the memories

Find the speck of dust

Transform our Universe


I'll tell you what I'm thinking, tell you what I miss

Tell me how you're feeling, be it pain or bliss

Let me hear your secret, I promise not to tell

Tell me what you're hoping, tell me what exists.


Tell me about that sleepy smile that rests on your face at night

Tell me of your heart that soars as you watch your dreams take flight

Find someone to whisper it, tell it soft and low

Let the world lean on in and let the dreaming go


Ask me why I'm helping, ask me why I care.

Ask me why I'm watching, ask me why I stare.

Tell me all your secrets, all your little lies

Tell me why you're different and what you have inside


Tell me of your wings, tell me what you've hoped

Tell me where have you been, tell me where you’ll go

I’m thinking that doing just a little can mean an awful lot

I’m thinking we have to realise just how much we’ve got

Tell me what you're reaching, tell me how you dare

Tell me what you're feeling, tell me how you care

I’m wishing for all those I love to live in peace and health

I’m wishing this far more than wishing on them wealth


I had a dream, the world would be a team with peace and love for all

If only the world could be a better place for all

Irrespective of color, race or creed

Indeed put an end to greed


Your words are like a heart-made gift

That bring me to the world you live

Share with me what's in your heart, trust me to understand

Open to me your heart’s content and I’ll show you too what’s mine



We’ll call for all the other people

Until the world will have a heart that beats as one.

I wish for global understanding and dream

That the love of reading will reach every boy and girl on earth


Listen to your friends, listen to their words

Listen to others, listen to chirpings of birds

Time be my friend, age be my strength

Allow moments to endure


Tell me what you're seeking, tell me what you need,

Unfurl the buds of your dreams and you might

End up seeing the world in a whole different light

Equality for all in our world.


Oh tell me with a metaphor

Please tell me in rhyme,

Tell me with a parable

Take your precious time.


Tell me what you're made of, tell me what you know

Tell me where your path lies, tell me where you'll go

Believe we can be someone the world would be happy to see

Believe we will grow in freedom the world with you and me

Tell me what you’re wanting to be heard, tell me how to hear

Tell me, together we can change, tell me when and now,

Tell me to think green, tell me and show me how.

Let the sound of children's laughter add years to our lives


Tell me you're believing in a dream not yet realized

Do you see beauty, do you see light?

Do your dreams take you on journeys each night?

I'm dreaming of a peaceful life and a world in which there is no strife.


I will always listen, I will always care.

You can always trust, that someone will be there.

Show me your experience, even just a jist

Show me your writing, it's a path to bliss


Tell me about everything, tell me what you want to say.

There’s a world out there waiting for all of us, a world wanting to be discovered.

I dream that every boy and girl had parents who leaned into learning

I wish that when they faced the wind, the leaning would give strength to the yearning

Tell me all about you, tell me your history.

Each one of us has a past,

And will have a bright future.

Anything is possible, listen to your heart.


I'll tell you what I'm thinking: I'm tired of all this strife

Right/left, pro/con, fear of change in this life

One of us is all of us; I am because you are.


Tell me what you're reading, tell me what you aim

Tell me what you're preaching, tell me what you do

Let equal opportunities prevail

To sustain this change; our wish, our desire!


Tell me, in the darkest of nights, tell me what you're seeing,

On the furthest shores, tell me what your vision was

I dream of a world with green leaves and blue moons


Pursue your dream, believe in life - share happiness instead of strife.

Let not the will of others cloud the choice you make.

Let love guide your actions; never spite never hate.

Your heart can hold more love than a tornado can stand


 Tell me what you're seeing; tell me what you learn

Tell me what you're missing; tell me what you yearn

Tell me how your day has been, in 20 words or less.

Great thanks, this poem is the BEST.


Tell me about future, just as real as all this!

Make your heart a seed, and this is just the start,

Make your heart the seed and watch new trees grow.

I wish for no poverty; it's so very snotty.

The end of the story is never the end of the story


A world full of knowledge, wonder and excitement,

With friendships abound, and amazing enticement

Tell me where this world is going, tell me where it lies

So tell me that you're up for change, that you want to raise the bar.


Young boys, young girls, put out all the stops, win your battle

Learn to love reading for it will help you end your struggle

Get off to a good start when speaking what’s on your mind

You’ll go places someday. Get laud! LitWorld is just behind.


You and I may be far apart

But through our poem, heart-to-heart


We miss the days of dreaming, lying in a field

Those simple days of reading, when time was slow or still

Have you dreamed of traveling to places far away?

Have questions kept you up at night with fear no words can say?


I tell you my heart aches, longing for you

Longing for the time being with you

What I'm thinking, I never know cause my

Mind can never focus on one thing

What I miss is my family!

Being the castaway gives me the

homesick feeling everyday

Your presence is what I miss; you're special, you’re unique


Sadness is a disease, happiness is the cure

Joy is like an angel, always clean and pure

Always be sure, always be kind

Think what you want and your heart will be pure.

What I dream is beyond me, my imagination is wide

Which takes me on plenty of rollercoaster rides

That make me sweat when I wake

REACH for your DREAM.... it's never too late


Tell me what you long for, tell me what you know.

Tell me where you've traveled, tell me where you'll go.

Share your deepest yearning, the places you have seen

I am dreaming of wonderful wishes for the children of the world.


Don't ever say NO! Always say YES!

Don't be afraid to dream, don't be afraid to guess 

Something that I dream of, something that I wish

Is to be a super star and have a jacket that goes swish, swish.

I also like the lights, camera action

I would love to be a superstar, I wish, I wish, I wish


I am thinking about love, happiness and someone special

They’ve been in my head the whole day, I can’t get them out.

I miss that person and I dream with them every night.

I wish they would be with me forever, right by my side.


I wish that I could graduate from the grades I have left and college

Then have a really successful life and live every second of my life.

I wish that I made it in the MLB, or a football or basketball team.

I wish I will pass and get an education, I wish I was rich and cool.


I’m thinking to be in the MLB

I am missing my mother when I am in school

I was dreaming about my dad playing baseball

I wish I could be in the MLB


Tell me what you love, tell me what you know.

Tell me what you need, tell me what you feel

Tell me what’s the deal, tell me if its real.

Tell me what excites you, tell me.


What I think is telling me what I had missing

What I dream is my memory.

What I wish isn’t important to my thoughts or my dream


Tell me what has changed, tell me all your pains

Tell me this is a dream, tell me what it seems.

Tell me what you got, tell me what you like to do.

Tell me what’s right and I’ll tell you what’s wrong.


I am thinking about basketball

I wish that school was over

I am dreaming about fun

I miss my granddad.


I see the darkness under your skin

Ready to jump and see your pain

I see you when you’re crying so I give you my heart

And I take you tears and turn them into kisses


I see you act like something you’re not.

But the people you act for will not be there forever

So rip it out and show them your wings,

Yes, baby fly away.


So I may say “I can’t see you”

But I miss you. I can’t hug you.

But I love you so make me happy

And fly like my beautiful dove.

It hurts to be away from my sweet baby girl,

I miss her dearly,

I wish mothers could stay home longer with newly born children,

I dream of her smiling when I come home.


I think about and miss my grandfather,

Along with dreaming and wishing he was still by my side.

I'm thinking of a perfect world, I'm missing my grandpa

I'm not dreaming I'm doing, I'm wishing for a happy life.


Thinking how life is stressful, missing my loving grandma.

Dreaming of the near future, Wishing for an easy way out.

How's vacation, grandma? Wish I came. I'm thinking about your call.

Call soon. Dreaming about your return. I miss you.


Tell me what you're thinking, is it love, I fear?

Tell me what you miss, is it my voice, you hear?

I’m thinking, missing, dreaming, wishing for my heart that has disappeared.

Will you find it and give it back ASAP?

When you sleep, when you dream, do I cross your thoughts?

I dream of you, I wish, wish that you would

Would just say that, that you love me too!

Now tell me what you miss, for a longer relationship we should of fought.


I'm thinking about then, missing what was there

I'm dreaming of him, I wish that it was fair

I wish I could stop myself from dreaming and thinking

About how much I miss your smile and laughter.


Tell me all your strengths, tell me all your fears

Tell me how you feel after all these years

I’m thinking of racing down the road

Thinking of that day again, missing that

Please rewind


Tell me your desire, tell me what’s next

Tell me no lies, show me no hate

I can tell you're far away, I see it in your eyes

Dreaming you were with me, wishing you were my love.


I'm thinking about my future

And I’m missing my past,

I'm dreaming of fantasies

And I’m wishing they would last.


I wish every baby a kind and loving home,

Clean food and water, and lots of room to roam.

I wish children's real needs were met,

Not left for angry gods and governments to forget.


Tell me what you’re doing, tell me what you wish

I am dreaming to change the world

I am wishing for world peace that is what I need

I'm dreaming to end world hunger.


Tell me what you’re doing, tell me what you do

Tell me what you need, tell me what you know

Tell what you achieve, tell me your wishes

What I wish is world peace, if it comes true I'll be happy


I wish that I were rich, I wish to sing

To be a baseball player playing at the Yankee Stadium

I am thinking to be a soccer player not a mayor.

I am thinking to be the best soccer player or be in a good team and win.


Tell me what you like, tell me what you miss

Tell me what you wish, tell me what you want to achieve

Tell me what you love, tell me what you want

Tell me what you’re doing, tell me what you write


Tell me what you’re wanting , tell me what you get

Tell me what you need, tell me what you have

Tell me what you love, tell me what you do always

Tell me what you’re reading, tell me what you understand

Tell me what you wish, tell me what you need


Tell me what you’re singing, tell me what you hope

Tell me what you’re wishing, tell me what you want

Tell me what you’re enjoying, tell me you like

Tell me what you’re saying, tell me what you pray


Tell me what you have, tell me why you like life

Tell me what you like doing, tell me how you feel,

Tell me if you hurt, tell me what it feels like to be loved


Tell me what you like, tell me how you feel

Tell me who you love, tell me why you hate

Tell what you like doing, tell me what you do.

Tell me what you want to be, tell me where you’d like to travel


I am thinking that every person should be educated equally

I miss my sister because it has passed 1 year before seeing her

I am dreaming that one day I will achieve my dreams.

I wish that one day the world changes to a wonderful one.


Tell me what you like, tell me what you hate.

Tell me what you feel, tell me who you love.

Tell me what you read, tell me why you like being a girl

Tell me what you like doing, tell me what you’ll be when you grow up


I am thinking of how to improve on my studies and talent

I miss visiting my aunt who is in Sudan

I am dreaming of becoming someone important in life

I wish to be a good parent in the future


Tell me what you are, tell me what you like.

Tell me what you do, tell me what you enjoy

Tell me what you look like, tell me what you aim for

Tell me where you are, tell me what you enjoy doing
