a dream is a cherished aspiration ambition or ideal and we are a city of dreamers once voted america’s most miserable place to live twice stockton where the murder crown top ten with the bullet on the dangerous city charts i’ll bring it to you like this when i found myself awake at 18 i’d attended 18 weeks in stockton mudville and the greatest thing ever on earth from mudville is its people molded from miwok soil grown on yokut ground grounded in our indigenous roots the original people of this land our flora is well versed in our past this cactus forever and prince hid into my skin never forgot the seeds we came from grew its first flower after being transplanted and stocked urban wildflowers that learned to blossom in a concrete jungle and though my grandma’s soul was plucked from this earth too soon and our prettiest were picked by god’s hands it reminds me that in this prickly place i call home i i can bloom too but stockton is not a desert of diversity we’re an oasis of inclusion safe haven for the largest early population of filipinos in the u.s where little manila is in the heart and history resides in tagalog tongues where sikhs built a temple in 1912 to seek the dream of enlightenment in their new holy lands young dreamers whose families found asylum on the field so we could all eat sonia dores los campos para que podamos comer in 1815 southern refugees established black industry in the valley turned a barber shop by day to a juke joint as the jazz played and as they swayed mudville found its soul for we are a city of dreamers young guns who pop wheelies out the meat we ride out 15 deep it keeps us from popping caps out the heat and we love our city but when it takes it takes too hard so we embrace these warm summer nights full of scars and memories of homies who ain’t made it this far stockton is more than his past more than his pain the 209 that i will claim till i die straight out the mud of the south side that birthed me raised me stocked in the home of boys and girls with a dream just like me stockton a work of hearts just like me a beautifully broken symphony just like me and we are its movement and somehow we are standing here and so can you no matter where you from either big city a small town there’s a dreamer in you just longing to break through miracles from woodville to the stage of our dreams and we are dreamers yes [Music] you
