I Wish!!!

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!
