Imagine

A poem about humanity and hope.

“Big Eye in the Sky” by Cheryl Claire Gittens-Jones

Listen on Free Music Archive: “Mountain Creek”

Imagine you, just a big eye in the sky

Looking down upon earth’s plains

Valleys and mountain ranges;

Earth’s people

Tell me, what would you see?

You’d see a world gone awry,

A world gone mad

People fanatically living in a superficial era

Lost but not knowing it,

Confused but not know why.

You’d see hardly any trees just a blanket of smog,

Of grime, dirt and dust,

Joseph’s coat blackened

By neglect and disregard.

As a big eye in the sky you’d see

Buildings thrusting heavenwards

Sore-thumbs covered in band-aids

Hunger, depravation, deceit and conceit

What can we do to make a change?

How can we find the peace and tranquility

We so desperately seek and need?

The source is within us all

We must turn within and explore our inner beings

Things can change if only each of us

Would take the responsibility

To care for our individual plots in life

So as a big eye in the sky, tell me, what do you see?

Is there hope for us?

Or are we lost?

Totally doomed.

No!!!

I believe in humanity and that

There is a chance if only we look within.
