John Lennon: Imagine (the disability version)

Whilst on my Epic European trip I saw a lot of things that ‘disabled’ myself and many other people living in 2012. I also listened to a lot of music, considered theoretically simple solutions and wrote some poetry. The solutions will be proposed in my imminent report and the poetry remains personal; however I have tweaked ‘Imagine’ by John Lennon for your entertainment. He could have written this for disabled people anyway (it is that relevant), but I added my own touches below.

You can listen to the song while reading the lyrics by clicking here.

Imagine there’s no stairways
It’s easy if you try
No steps below us
Above us only one sky
Imagine all the people
Living in equality…

Imagine there’s no prejudice
It isn’t hard to do
No reason to judge or hate
And no name calling too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

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 be as one

Imagine accessible transport
I wonder if you can
No broken lifts or moody drivers
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

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


  1. Imagine an entire world living in peace… John saw the beauty and inherent good in humanity. I tried to do his legacy justice and channel his world-embracing and loving energy this week with a tribute portrait inspired by his music and his passion for changing the world. You can see this new work of art in memoriam on my artist’s blog at along with some pictures showing how I created it. See John holding the Universe in his hand and spreading his message. When you stop by, let me know how his words and music have affected your life and creativity!
