PreScript: CrossPosted from my blog!
I don't know why,
I always find something amiss with me,
There are some ever-present faults,
What worse could my life be!
I wish I could fly,
Like a bird in the open sky,
Feel the wind sweeping along my body,
See the world just speeding by!
I wish I could swim,
Like a fish in the deep blue sea,
Scour out hidden treasures and troves,
At a depth I couldn't fathom to be!
I wish I could be just as bright,
As the red hot sun,
Spread my heat and warmth along,
And give life to everyone!
I wish I could be as wise,
As the ancient old sages,
Would solve all problems and decipher all mysteries,
In minutes rather than ages!
I wish I could be as strong,
As the great mythical Greek gods,
Would force my way through all the trouble,
And would win against all odds!
I wish I could be as rich,
As the wealthiest king there has ever been,
Would live in riches and be benevolent,
Unlike anyone the world has ever seen!
I wish I was as fortunate,
As the lovely couples around,
Would love her to eternity,
My joy would have no bound!
My list of wishes is never ending,
I always find something I miss,
Can't help it; its human nature,
So cannot find happiness or bliss!
But I look around myself,
Sadness, starvation & deprivation is all I see,
I make a final wish from my heart,
Let everyone be at least as fortunate as me!
