Imagine

Imagine if the sun never burned
The Earth never turned
And the seasons didn’t come and go

What if time stood still?
A gun didn’t kill
And Death was neither friend nor foe

What would happen if there was no war?
If the stories weren’t lore
Just imagine how much more we would know

John put these words in a song
They still stick even after so long

The message reoccurring
The music so alluring

How has it been so misplaced in the world we live in today?
How is what I ask
…I can’t imagine how

this is a really good poem. I liked your word usage. I also like the message of imagatiaton. Well keep it up. Suggestion: maybe you should have a hook? Other than that great job
