Imagine It

Imagine It



Imagine the world with nothing but peace

Nothing but love or harmony, and all is safe.

Imagine the world with all people of all colors

Joining hand in hand, to say in unison

“Yes we can!”

To say to oppression and fear, hate and racism

That we have conquered you, and we are all equal

no longer shall we be individuals.

Imagine the world with no gangs, no murders,

No rape or hate.

Instead imagine it with young black men and women,

Young Asians, young Hispanics, young sons and daughters

Of all races, going to school, or work, or coming home

from work to see their family.

To see their sons and daughters, and their wife or husband

Waiting patiently for them to join and share the day’s stories

When the children are tucked in, and the man and woman lie in bed

The man turned the woman just as the woman turned to him

And they both said,

“ United we are one, and we are free,

We are loved and cherished, and we shall conquer all obstacles

That have been placed in our path.

United we are brothers and sisters, mother and father

Friends and lovers.

United, we are one.”

Imagine that.

Imagine, IT.

I have often imagined a world like thte one you describe in you poem.  I am becoming a fan of your work.  I also like your most recent submission about how you take the pen from your mind.  Maybe we can share our work.

Sorry I haven't been on in awhile. I would love to. Any chance I can get to learn how other people write is a thumbs up in my book.
