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…
