A Wish

O comforting tree!
Neither I need your fruits
Nor your blossoms,
Want only a bit of your shade
Tired I am
To take rest under your shade,
Then will leave
Travel I have to
I will keep travelling.

O lovely lass!
Neither I need your beauty
Nor your comely physique
Want only a bit of place
In the deeps of your bosom
You love me or not
I love you
Keep loving
Travel I have to
I will keep travelling.

O patronizing society!
Neither I need shelter
Nor I need any protection
Need only two yards of land
Tired I am
Let me take a bit of rest
After all travel I have to
I will keep travelling.
