IMAGINE CHILD

Imagine,  child,
How foolish we once were.
Having low opinion of ourselves!
That we would ALWAYS fight
We would compete
And some would die
And some would kill
And some would starve.
Our thoughts were prisons
Blocking all our hope!
Imagine, child
How foolish we once were!

Imagine, child,
How difficult it was
Back then,  for those
Who said that “This is all wrong
This must change!”
Those first imaginers
Who dreamt the future.
Some were cut down,
Some ideas were killed
Some mocked into silence
And some dreams starved of life.
Imagine, child
How difficult it was!

Imagine, child,
How hope began to grow
When we connected up
Across the world.
When we found others
Working for the change
Ended divisions,
Dropped competition, nationality, money stuff
And shared our talents freely,
Shared our dreams.
Imagine child
How hope began to grow!

So look around you, child,
And see our world – so wonderful!
Our people good and loving,
All the beauty they create,
And how our minds play with ideas.
We keep our gardens lush and thriving.
Yes, we came through!
Imagine, child
That step we took together
To come to this beauty
We took the walk of union
We won this future!
