The Sole Desire

The Sole Desire short poem

Uploaded by Dr. Disha Khanna


I have no hi-fi desire,
To overcome the mountains.

I have no hi-fi desire,
To bring draught to the water filled oceans.

I have no hi-fi desire,
To tread beyond the dark clustered clouds.

I have no hi-fi desire,
To get the beautiful heavenly sky on the earth.

But I do have a sole desire to-
Reside in everybody’s heart,
Bring glee on every depressed visage,
Overcome any hurdle with indomitable spirit,
Brighten every desolated path;

And I have the sole desire to-
BE MYSELF!
