You May Say I’m A Dreamer

13 Nov

The Daily Prompt at WordPress asked bloggers today to take a line from a song that we love or connect with and to make that our blog post title.

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

– John Lennon from “Imagine”

Every time I hear the song “Imagine” I either tear up or actually cry. This song has always resonated with me. The lyrics break down little thoughts that I’ve had and wondered about many times before.

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…

In my opinion, Lennon is asking what if we were to just live in the present moment and not worry about each other’s beliefs. I also wonder what it would be like if we all worked toward a common goal of peace and love, instead of arguing about who is wrong or right about their world-view.

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

We divide ourselves with imaginary borders when it’s completely not necessary, if you really think about it. It’s nice to think about no divisions and boundaries and just living in harmony.

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

I get chills when I just read these lyrics. My grandmother has always told me that I’m a dreamer, and maybe that’s why I appreciate this song so much. I’ve always hoped for a better world and a more positive future, and this song helps me believe that there are others out there like me.
