MY DESIRE.


How I wish the sky is not my limit
But wish it my beginning
How I wish I could change the world
Bringing the world into oneness
How I wish I could rule over life
And life not rule over me
Making things happen the way I want it
And not things running me
How I wish I could see the future
Studying and planning for it
Knowing how to fully prepare for it
And not desiring the future
That will break the ties of the past
Not really anxious about the future
But planting for the raining days
When all else is lost, the future still remains
Cos this are my desire
Knowing fully the reality of life
My desire of great things
My desire of great value

    desire is something we should always have because without desire we can't feel the happiness of achieving the desire itself..

    A good write and a clear expression of your desire. Desires, I believe, the fates
    will never grant due to their plans for mischief.
