If You Have Eagerness In Your Heart - Poem by Javed Akhtar

If you have eagerness in your heart, it means you are alive,
If your eyes are filled with dreams, it means you are alive
Learn to be free like the wind,
Learn to flow freely like the river,
Embrace every moment with open arms,
See a new horizon every time with your eyes,
If you carry surprise in your eyes, it means you are alive,
If you have eagerness in your heart, it means you are alive…

    this is excellent
    but if only you had shared in your original
    Urdu form

    kindly keep our hearts
    by a smile if not a reply
    poetry loses its original sheen,
    stability, when translated

    we all hanker for lovely moments
    in their nascent form

    kindly dwell a bit more
    do say
    how moments pass for many as silently while for others
    moments laugh

    Very truly said. If there is eagerness in heart, it is evident that life is flowing on its course. A very beautiful poem. Liked it immensely.
    Since the current treasure island topic on PH is on ‘ Peace, ’ I invite you to read my poem entitled ‘ A Nice Wise Guy, ’ on PH
