I wish I could peep into the future;
To know, if life itself was worth living without measure;
Rather than living in absolute probation;
That is edgeless like a circle, with no actual destination.
I wish I could stealthily go back to yesterday;
Maybe,I’d come back home from the places;
Where I’d blindly wandered and strayed
I’d kiss momma, tell her I’ll be successful and I’d go places.
I wish I could beat the supremacy of time;
Maybe, I’d be clean without owing anyone a dime;
I’d reduce hatred, been balanced with love around;
I’d genuinely love everyone, with peace abound.
Sometimes I even wished I was a wish;
Not as worthless a slave but as a worthy teacher to teach;
That humanity is what we should cherish;
That we may spread mutual love and not to be selfish.
Ha! I wish momma didn’t smile at me too much;
When my fist could barely make a punch;
Telling me the world was indeed colourful afield;
Well, I fell into the normal trap as a thoughtless kid;
Her smile now is a symbol of strength, that I’ll make her proud and be fit.
I wish this was not a poem written by someone who seems to be drunk;
But a realistic speech from someone much more important like Donald Trump;
Oh! What happened to my thoughts;
I’m surprised I wrote them out, they’ve got guts.
I am very grateful to you this patient reader;
For reading my above lines probably because you want to be a leader;
I wish I didn’t write this piece in rhymes;
Maybe, you’ll shamelessly ride my boats of thoughts irrespective of the time;
But alas it’s a poem.
