Community, The Upside of Things

Imagine Life

Imagine Life

Imagine Life at 1

At the beginning 

At the brink of human creations

A clean slate for all of humanity 

Brand new destiny 

No sins to regret 

Imagine life 

Where there are green trees on every street 

Blossoming flowers in every season

No killing

No abandonment 

Children’s lives spared for the greater

Families raising families

Children playing safely in the streets

Marriages of all kinds accepted 

Imagine life 

Where hoods are actually good places to raise your children 

And corner stores are libraries on every block 

Schools are allowed to educate children with no financial limit 

Teachers receive salaries comparable to CEOs of million dollar     companies 

Imagine life 

Where every boy has his father to look to as a role model 

Where every father has a past and future his son can be proud of

Imagine life

Where women raise ladies 

And women are born with the knowledge to equally balance family, career and her personal life

To survive if she has to as a single mother 

Where every daughter has an opportunity to date a respectable man 

Imagine life 

Where minimum wage starts at $10.50

And being yourself 

Tattoos, piercing and natural hair 


Where real music isn’t responsible for our children’s mistakes 

Imagine life

In constant motion 

Where change is embraced 

Where human rights aren’t questioned

Where equality is equal amongst all races, males and females 

Imagine life

And imagine you changing it.
