I Wish

I wish I didn’t wish so much,
To be is to wish,
To wish is to be expectant,
When expectations are easily realized?

I think if wishes were horses,
They could run afar and,
Fetch us the things desired,
But then, this also is a wish!

How difficult it is not to wish,
To wish is to be driven - to be moving and successful,
It is fear of stagnation - of being left behind,
Which makes us wish,
Not to wish is frightening - it isolates you.

There are hindrances aplenty in fulfillment of the wishes,
Yet, how vicious is the working of the wish,
That we still wish!
