John Lennon’s “Imagine” has been in my mind lately

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 may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possession
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

The thought of a world with out war interests me.  The things that people kill and die for are beyond me.  I was raised in a world of love and acceptance, so to hate enough to kill a person is tough to think of.  Yes, I believe I could kill to defend myself or another, but not for a belief.

Yet John was a dreamer, our world will never be with out passions of some kind.  The struggle for food, home and to pass on our genetics is ingrained into creatures of all types.  A world with out struggle will not work, but it would be nice.

I watched part of the documentary on John Lennon last weekend. You may say I’m a dreamer too, and I’m not the only one.
