! Wishes !


BlogJunta - An ode to the Blogosphere


Thanks BlogJunta for picking this post as Editor’s Choice.


The poem “! Wishes !“, selected by Gemma @ Greyscale Territory as her choice of best blog posts (January 2011). Wanna know what she said about this post, read it here

Amazing character sketches of personas! Love the slight differences and especially love the real inner spirit imbued in the last very personal insight into the writer’s persona! (in response to !Wishes! by Someone is Special)” – Happy man to read these sweet words and to be in the list of selected blogs..

As a human being…
O my beautiful God!
Give me the world
With no trace of war
Give me the country
With no fear of crime
Give me the people
With no difference in races
Give me the neighbor
With no jealousy in heart
Give me the relations
With no fake smile on the face
If not,
Give me the soul
With no wish to wish!

As an IT Professional…

O my beautiful God!
Give me the workplace
With no partiality in people
Give me the client
With no insulting words on call
Give me the project
With no dreadful word: deadline
Give me the code
With no bug in it
Give me the day
With no Monitor to stare at
If not,
Give me the world
With no ‘IT’ word!

As a poet…

O my beautiful God!
Give me the morning
With no horn sound
Give me the night
With no artificial stars
Give me the air
With no pollution in it
Give me the water
With no ships on it
Give me the Mountain
With no tourists in it
If not,
Give me the heart
With no love for poems!

As Someone is Special

O my beautiful God!
Give back the beautiful place
Where I lived for 300 peaceful days
Give back the joyful childhood
When I smiled for no reasons
Give back the friendly lap
Where I slept for hours
Give back the lovely day
When I slept for 24 hours
Give back the school
Where I was the only Hero
Give back the sweet moments
When I scored centum in Mathematics
Give back the narrow road
Where I raced with cycles
Give back the pleasant time
When I first felt who I am to someone
If not,
Give me the heart
With belief as weapon
That these words will come true
One day!

O my beautiful God!
  Grant me these wishes!
O my beautiful God!
