POEM|Imagine

Imagine a world without hope;
No dreams
No wishes
No expectations

Imagine a world without romance;
No Romeo and Juliet
No Beauty and The Beast
No Jack and Rose

Imagine a world without books;
No libraries and bookshops
No bedtime stories
No writers

Imagine a world without music;
No songs
No live shows
No dance

Imagine a world without sugar;
No cookies and cream
No icing and candy
No untimely deaths

Imagine a world without social media;
No quick access to information
No unwarranted comparisons
No cyber bullying

Imagine a world without hate;
No discrimination
No racism
No fright

Imagine a world without poverty;
No children dying of hunger
No one working instead of schooling
No preventable deaths

Imagine a world without colours, science and religion.

Imagine a world which can never exist.
