What would happen if the world lived like the lyrics the song "Imagine" - John Lennon? 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 Is not 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 of be as one Imagine no possessions I wonder if you cans No need for Greed or hunger A brotherhood of man Imagine all the people Sharing all the world ... Imagine if in this world no country, even though religion. What will happen to the world? Will there be peace? Imagine if there was no war, no one should be killed or die in vain. Imagine if there is no hell, heaven, we live in peace. Imagine if there was hunger, misery, oppression, people help each other. Is life will be more beautiful if we live like this? What is the response?

Then the world would be perfect. But I guess the title of the song illustrates it best, imagine. I guess that's really all we could do. I remember a few years back, Lea Salonga, a famed singer here in the Philippines, sang this song in one of her concerts. Before she sang she said, when this song was written the writer was probably looking at a really beautiful picture to come up with the imagined world. Another memory that this song brings back is the movie, Forest Gump. That interview session with John Lennon. That was pretty funny.

Hello gengeni, The song connotes an ideal world but the world needs balance where there is white and black, there's ups and downs, there must be positive and negative. How can you say your in heaven wherein you don't know what hell is.There must be injustice to fully describe justice. There must be a wallet without a penny for you to strive hard to fill that up. There must be sadness and misery to spice up our world and feel the heaven of happiness. Because of those the song was composed and now we are all just dreaming!! Happy Mylotting.
