Can You Imagine
Can you imagine – a world without love
Can you imagine- no stars up above
Can you imagine- no animals to be found
And the ones you see are dead on the ground.
Can you imagine- not a bird in the sky
Now the toughest thing is “asking yourself why “.
Look around you and what do you see
Wars, sickness, and poverty.
It’s gotten to a point that war is the only answer
But this war will be against sickness and poverty.
We must create health, and give back a little wealth.
We are the only ones that can make the change
Otherwise life will stay the same.
Can you imagine- seeing your child in torn clothes or dirty rags
And people dying in the streets
Because of a health bill they cannot meet.
We have child slavery and child porn
Was this the reason our kids were born?
“Now” can you imagine-this most beautiful sight
If the world’s population stood up to fight.
