Wishes: The Unending Chain
Every one has a wish or a dream. Wishes not only expand the thinking power but also creativity of an individual. And from childhood human wish , wish and wish more and more, unlimited wishes!
Every people have different wishes in life. For eg: For a doctor his ultimate wish is to cure all the patients in his hospital or clinic, a teacher wishes to give utmost knowledge to the child for a magician his wishes is to make all his tricks successful that night to make a grand show.A actor wishes to entertain people and be a charmer of the show.
I too have lots of wishes. We dream different with ages. When I was a small child I too wished of becoming a Barbie and roam into the fantastic world of Barbie,To play with all pink sets of Barbie .To meet Hansel and Gretel a stay with them in a house constructed of cakes , candies many more imaginable eateries. I wanted to go deep under the ocean with Ariel the mermaid and wanted to have sleek long hair like Rapunzel. I wanted to be beautiful snowhite and form friendship with seven dwarfs.I wanted to be a sleeping beauty and to wait for my adorable prince who will awaken me by his magical kiss.My list to do was endless and dreams were unlimited.
But as I grew up my wishes got a little change in them and slowly I forgot about the ocean and the blissful kiss At the age of 12 my wish was to have a powerful wand in my hand and finish Voldemort .To become fearless warrior and to be a hero of all’s eye.
Shimmering and shining in the night sky.
I wish I was the coconut palm,
With its head held up high.
I wish I was the pretty lark,
singing out her sweet melodious song.
I wish its voice were pretty enough,
to prove all dark and dreary things wrong.
I wish I was the Ganges or the Yamuna,
whose drops are as blissful as heavenly dew.
I wish I was the Mount Himalaya,
bravely shouldering the burden of Bharat Ma,
I wish I was the enchanting Dahlia,
that blooms in the garden and in one’s heart.
I wish I was the wide blue horizon itself,
with its wide all-encompassing bosom.
I wish it was wide enough,
to cover up man’s existing spiritual chasm.
I wish I was all this and more,
anything except the shadowy cloak,
to this mist, on my heart that I wore
I pine, I languish and I pray,
not this physical self to please,
But I pray, O Father! For spirit’s enlightenment,
and for the pure breath of peace.
Probably, at a deeper level, if we brood over the evolution of the entire human civilization, it can be linked to “necessity”. This necessity, in turn was preceded by a “hope”- hope for betterment, hope for something else, etc.- which is a derivative of “wish”. It’s a wish which made man invent wheel, discover fire, create a language, and the rest is history. The article stirred up all these thoughts, and has an apt Title- Unending Chain. It made me recall my own journey of wishes, from being a Spider-Man to Sherlock Holmes. Let this chain continue… For spirit’s enlightenment, and for the pure breath of peace- as said in the poem.
