The Scale Of Desire - Poem by Seema Chowdhury

My scale of desire is very long
My wishes and longings are very strong

I wish for love, peace and more
I wish everywhere there must be a store

of care, kindness and good feelings
With fairness and honesty in all dealings

I wish everywhere to see the tree
Of smile and cheers that must be free

Of the thorns and weeds of pain
That creates touchy feelings in the brain

And I wish this because I have a long
Scale of desire that is strong.
