    Description:
       I know, I know--these dreams are hopeless. We will never stop wars, or love one another. The only reason I did this was because it's a class assignment. And if I put my "real" dreams for our nation and the world, I really don't think I would get a good mark...

    This correlates to "Imagine," copyright and words by John Lennon.

    I know it's very similar to Martin Luther King's own speech, but I just happen to share some of the same ideals he had.

    And I also know it's very hippie-ish and clichéd and long, but feel free to fire away your criticisms.

    "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..."


    I have a dream that one day all the nations will flourish as a whole. Instead of making destructives--like bombs and nuclear weapons--we will use our resources to better humanity, not destroy it.

    "...Nothing to kill or die for..."


    I have a dream that death will be brought by only natural causes, not through greed or war. All of the progress, all of the people--we will live for them.

    "...No religion too..."


    I have a dream that religion will be recognized for all it is--faith. People will not have wars, discrimination, or misunderstandings over something they cannot prove exists. We will realize that religion is what we work for in this life to attain rewards after death. We will learn to embrace each other with indifference to religion, because we will grasp that human warmth is much more than what faith can provide.

    "...Imagine all the people,
    Living life in peace

    Imagine there's no possessions,
    I wonder if you can..."


    I have a dream that material possessions will deteriorate next to the needed love from another human being, instead of the fleeting pleasure of owning something cold, lifeless, and--eventually--useless.

    "...No need for greed or hunger,
    A brotherhood of man..."


    I have a dream that gluttony will be no more, as we will share food with the less fortunate and only consume enough to sustain ourselves. Egotistical superiority will be forgotten, as we will strive to lend a helping hand to our neighbors.

    "...Imagine all the people,
    Sharing all the world..."


    I have a dream that race will be admired as one of the traits that sets diversity, rather than a frowned-upon tainted flaw to our character. We will learn to find beauty in each other, and, ultimately, in ourselves.

    "...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 live as one"

      This has a lot of Lennon in it as well as King. Being older I'm a lot more cynical, I suppose. Still, there's hope...

    Peace,

      John Lennon and Dr. King. How amazing it is to see two simular minds from two different walks of life with one view. I like how you have complimented them both here.
    They both lived up to their reputations.

    Imagine if everyone could think this way. Imagine a 13 yr old that can see what most adults have not been able imagine or dream of their whole life.

    Nice write little one

    Respect and Admiration

      I cannot believe you're only 13 yrs old.

    Here Goes...

    well said
    well put
    well done

    You put this together just right. I love "Imagine" by John Lennon, and Dr King said it all in his speech. 2 different people but yet wanted the same for all. I'm glad you have the same view points as both especially at the young age you are. I have to say this...you have a good head on your shoulders. Keep your same ways as you get older. The world is waiting for you! a great write with a whole lot of meaning. take care, wanda
