Boundless Desire - Poem by ramesh rai

All creatures are embodied
with boundless desire
the desire to spring up
the desire to spread up

A seedling desires to be a tree
a bud desires to be a flower
each and every one
has some desire

This is the reason of life
this is the reason of survival
to rejoice the nature
to be a part of nature

The desire is like waves of ocean
always tries to touch its bank

O God!

You have given me also
a boundless desire
neither the voice
nor the language

With poor treasure of my words
and voice, I express my desire
through my poetry
to enlighten my flippant heart and mind
which is covered
with darkness of delusion and
trying to touch the bank of my soul.
