Imagine by 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 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 someday 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…"

'Imagine,' was written in March 1971 during the Vietnam War, and described by Lennon  as “an ad campaign for peace”. It has become a permanent protest song and a lasting emblem of hope.

The song is an expression of hope for freedom and peace in the world, and the world being one and everyone living together in peace. Lennon reminds us that the difference among people or countries in the world need not be a chasm separating people, or arousing war instead we can live together celebrating and accepting our diversity and helping one another and sharing the world’s resources.
