John’s Words

If you’ve been following along this week, most of what I’ve written have been my words, my views. Today, I want to share the voice of someone else. In 1971, the song, “Imagine,” was released. It was co-written by John Lennon and wife, Yoko Ono. In 2011, Rolling Stone magazine named it the third-greatest song of all time. It’s number one for me and has been for some time.

Here we are, nearly 50 years later, and we’ve yet to manifest the things John sang and dreamed about. It’s not too late. We can do this.

Just imagine what the world would be like if we did?

“Imagine”

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today
 
 
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you
 
 
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
 
 
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you
 
 
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
