I wish.. But
I wish if i could swirl the time to past,
and delete all the shoddy reminiscence,
Omitting all the rendezvous which hurt later.
Ah I wish and can just wish,
Because I neither have Genie nor Aladdin's lamp.
If only I could turn back time,
immaculate the errs of the past,
which tormented me over the years.
Subtracting all the time when I just daydreamed,
and added the void with real efforts.
But Ah! lost time is like the mirage,
a beautiful dream and the reflection on water,
That could be just seen, not felt.
But suddenly another thought
came as a beautiful ray of hope
What if really I corrected the past,
My present wouldn't be as beautiful as now.
Because beautiful memories post mistakes will be deleted too.
May be I wouldn't have learnt to walk,
because I had deleted the time I fell and got hurt.
Or would be so careless to learn
as I can correct them anytime
just like a spoiled brat.
I might have deleted the memories of climbing up the trees to get a mango,
and slipping down while doing so.
And the memories of bonding with my father,
while learning how to ride a cycle
as i fell down and broke my chin.
And had missed all such fun
I might not be a strong person,
staying under the impression of myself as a delicate doll.
Yes I did shed tears for the errs of past,
but it was as worth as polishing diamond,
turning from rough to a polished gem.
I might not get hurt after using a life corrector.
But I wouldn't be the person I am.
My flaws are glorifying part of mine.
Just like scars on the moon.
Life is not a sprint but hurdle race because nobody likes a game without challenges.
Where everyone is fighting there own battle.
And if you can gift someone in life
be a reason behind their gorgeous smile.
