I wish I were…

I wish I were…

I wish I were a dream 
An epiphany of a mystery,
Surreal, as it may be
For the protagonist I would be.

I wish I were the time,
A companion in might
A reminder in sight
Always moving, ahead.

I wish I were the spring,
Reminiscing the past mistakes
Reviving the lost phases,
Humbling new, better beginnings

I wish I were a  heartbeat,
A rhythm in sync
Drowning in the elusive harmony
Of togetherness and love

I wish I were the horizon,
Endless and mythical
Plentiful, yet much to learn
Even more to explore

I wish I were the sky
With endless dream and countless stars
An inspiration of a lifetime,
And a destiny for a few

I wish I were the ocean,
Hiding the treasures
Beneath the bed of mysteries
A enigma… to be explored.

This post is written for BlogChatter prompt of the week : I Wish I were

P.S. I am late, a week late in posting. But I have/ had to, mostly because …umm I just had to. You ask why I was late? Actually, I had something else in mind to write for this prompt, which seemed too harsh, or too soon for people to know. Also, if you have noticed, I have written about a couple too many things I wish to be, which just means that I am very uncertain of what I want. No surprises there! What? Did you say something?

Taken for granted
Discarded and curbed; Rose she
Shifting the horizons.

We live in a world where we stand for equality but at the same time we don’t give enough opportunity or chance. Yes, there is this ego of being on the top that consumes us and that’s when we tend climb down all the steps we have climbed just to prove a point that we are still powerful. And we don’t realize is that when we climbed down the steps, they climbed up the steps, but we never could climb up those steps, ever.

P.S. We, I generalized this because even if most of us don’t feel it this way, some of the people do. So, “WE” have already failed in a way.
