This is the first poem that I wrote in the year 2005. This poem reflects my ambition to be free like a bird, a breeze and a river.


I wish I were...

I wish I were a bird flying, from one land to another,
with the wings of freedom, piercing the chest of the sky,
giving an ode of freedom to the people from one land to another,
I wish I were a bird flying, from one land to another;


I wish I were a breeze, blowing from one land to another,
blowing in the green fields,
helping the rain to shower itself in the meadows,
giving peace of mind to the people, from one land to another,
I wish I were a breeze blowing one land to another;


I wish I were a river, flowing from one land to another,
cutting my way through rocks,
carrying away with me the paper-boats of children,
laden with the ode of peace, love and freedom, from one land to another,
I wish I were a river flowing from one land to another.

What a better world it would be if we could actually do this. Even aspiring to it makes us something more than we were.
