I Wish Not To - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

I wish not to leave my land
Where I got birth and friends
The sky with no ends in horizon
And the stars with twinkles to smile on

I wish no death should approach
I must be assured of no threat as such
I work endlessly for nature’s cause
I am much needed here because…

Why I wish another world for salvation?
When there is so much here for revelation
Beautiful birds in morning with sweet voice
And life full enterprise and with great promises

The idea of leaving itself sends me shock wave
I shall relentlessly fight and never give in
How nicely the nest is woven to live long?
Almighty might have thought very wrong

I don’t want eternal peace
I want to live with poor brethrens at ease
I wish to wipe their tears
Pain and agony to bear

I won’t get all in heaven
That idea itself disturbs me even
The mortal body may be consigned or buried
I am from now it very much worried

I wish to become tiny thought and stay
Let hatred go and peace not to go away
I wish to enter their healthy mind
No bloodbath but only gesture of very kindness

I know I will be forced to leave
I will not be allowed permanently to live
Yes, I wish to extend my stay
Let I be given extension to find the way

All living beings will have to perish
Reach to dead end and wait to be finished
My chances may be totally diminished
Yet I have pondered over much and wished
