Day Dreamer


Dreams are common for every human
Possible while body and mind are not in motion
Burning desires and churning problems
Prompt the mind in going for a stroll

Eyes are wide open while mind in a sojourn
Body active with actions mechanical
Imaginations igniting endless illusions
Dating the fantasies in reaching the pinnacle

Suppressed desires and oppressed feelings
Lack of means finally leading to frustration
Spiritless efforts fetching a worthless living style
Push the mind to go for a dream of its own choice

Dining with Celebes and dancing with damsels
Owning the villas with various comforts
Maids and servants to obey the commands
Mind blowing beauties to flaunt and flirt with

Fleet of vehicles waiting at the corridor
Scores of armed guards standing for vigil
Going places with the likes of sweet heart
Leading a life to the envy of everyone

Billions worth of business empires
Going global and earning the laurels
Finding a place in the list of top ten
Dreaming the way to the heights of Glory

Unending wealth with perennial resources
Effortless incomes for limitless spending
Basking in glory by reaching the pinnacle
Sulking rivals waiting for a chance to strike

People of repute waiting for an audience
Press and channels vying for interviews
Persons in power obliging the commands
Possible providence only in day dreams

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
