DP Daily Prompt: EarWorm Post by Ranu

My favourite is John Lennon’s song:  “Imagine”

Imagine there’s no heaven

Imagine There's No Hunger    -  Strawberry Fie...

Imagine There’s No Hunger – Strawberry Fields – Central Park, NYC (Photo credit: asterix611)

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 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, 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 live as one

This song speaks to me,in a way nothing else can.It has everything that tells me how to make the world a better place. The assortment of countries,possessions,greed,hunger, religions,all these are the problems of the world. Remove them and there will be peace and tranquility.

It’s my thought.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you very much for this.

    This song by John Lennon immediately brings Iqbal to my mind. Lennon is speaking to nothing less than imaginging, dreaming, ideating a Marghdeen. That’s precisely where it all is birthed.

    When I read, “Imagine there’s no countries…,” I hear Iqbal speaking to deleterious effects of so-called “patriotism,” and turning one’s nation into an idol.

    All good wishes,

    robert
