Imagine - Poem by Rafael Marco Balbin

What if nobody was abandoned?
And what if the knowledge was absorbed?
We could live without remorse,
We could love with the feelings expose.

If everyone tried and nobody cried,
If everyone who denied swallows their pride,
If nobody lied and we're all glorified,
Then, we'll be tied up and satisfied.

Look at the world where we live in,
most of us live with a sinister skin.
But there will be light, it will gleam.
In the stray of hope, we'll work as a team.

What If everyone loved their adversary?
Then, we'll live altogether so happily.
What If they were united like you and me?
Then, Imagine what our world could be.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem with the help of my friend.
It's about things we need to realize. People make changes in our world. Yes, change is constant; but changing is also our fault. It's because of our own misdeeds. As we can see, changes may be positive and negative, but negative things become more dominant than the good things. Let's go back to the reality. Please.
