A Poem By Mario Watts

Imagine a world where hearts are never broken


A world where love is true – never false.


 


Imagine a child growing up never having any fears or tears


Now imagine that child watching painfully as their parents are taken by God


Then imagine that child growing up in a cruel world all alone


 


Imagine a sista’ fresh and new


Who starts doing things that only a whore would do


Sellin’ her candy on a street corner to every stranger she meets


Now imagine that sista’ carrying something new


Carrying a child that would give her something to live for


Then she leaves the baby in a metal box with the rest of the trash to starve and die


Not realizing that it’s a baby not a thing


 


Imagine a woman in love with a man she would die for


Only to find out that he’s been sleeping around with a man


And brings her death in the form of three letters…AIDS.


 


Imagine a mother sitting by a window crying as the rain strikes the window seal


Crying cause her little man is out making deals


She’s praying to God to keep him safe


Then there’s a call on the phone that interrupts her faith


Telling her to come to the morgue to identify the one she carried inside her for nine months


 


Imagine a world where no babies die


Even when we send them off to war


Fighting for a freedom man made – a lie


 


Imagine a world without suffering or greed


A place where government provides for the people’s need


 


Imagine a letter, to the “Man”


Reminding them that killing another man was a sin,


And that they started every single war that our people’s been in.


 


Now imagine all this was just fiction


And there was no such thing as affliction


 


Imagine a world were people let God be the judge.


 


Now imagine never having to imagine…
