Imagine

By
Imagine a world
Where the wind blows so soft
And laughter and joy
Are heard frequent and oft

Imagine a world
Where the work is like play
And the sun smiles warmly
On you every day

With your best friends around you
You’re never alone
And each day after school
You all talk on the phone

Where you know if you’re sad
There are places to go
A soft shoulder to cry on
As you let your pain go

Now imagine that world
On a bright summer day
As you stand there and watch it
All get torn away

After three months of mourning
You’re in a new school
When you’re youngest and dumbest
You feel like a fool

There used to be good days
And bad days were rare
But now that’s reversed
And you’re too cold to care

For the warmth that you loved
Has blown off on the breeze
Now you’re shivering and cold
Always ill at ease

Your hearts in your throat
And the fear’s in your mind
But where to go now
When the world’s so unkind

You flee from the lunch room
And dash for the stars
Knowing no one will miss you
Because nobody cares

And as tears streak your face
At noon every day
You wonder if ever
You won’t feel this way

Imagine a world
Of deception and fear
Of lies, drinks, and drugs
That don’t belong here

And imagine my friend
Just what would you do
If this new scary life
Was thrust upon you

And so that is why
Sometimes I won’t talk
Why I flee class so anxious
And go for a walk

I need you right now
So please stay with me friend
Through this nightmare of change
Until we reach the end
