Abdul Wahab


What's the use to be a miser in a dream!


In life if you have to have dreams
Then dreamt a dream which makes you an owner of a hill
If dream brakes
And the hill slips out of your hand
You should not be sad
As a chunk of it would be enough for you
And you should be glad to know that
There are many going
Without having anything out of it

If you have expectation in life
Expect the whole sky
What if you do not get it
Heaven would not be unholy
But if you get even a broken cloud
Your life would be a piece of fertile land

What’s the use to be a miser
What’s the cost you have to pay
For a fabulous dinner or supper
In dream in a luxurious hotel
You need nothing but courage.

    Beautiful message. We don't get all what we want as wants are unlimited. But many times it happens that something in our hand may be the dream of other, which they don't get. As you said a chunk of it enough to make one happy too. (Report) Reply
