of life, hope and simple desires...

Desires---dont we all have some??
ofcourse we do...afterall 'salvation' is something far far away for us mere mortals isnt it??
our desires keep changing according to the various phases we are in and as per the myriad parts we play in life...

but often we take things for granted...like say normal day to day achievements without even stopping to think that these could be the unfulfilled desires of someone...
someone who you dont even know or perhaps never would...
someone who desires to perform the normal mundane tasks u do and maybe have even cribbed about just because its too routine and because u needed a change...

What if u never had the capacity to perform them? what if u had never been blessed with that potetial uve been overlooking and taking for granted all along?
To see the myriad colours of the rainbow...
to appreciate the beauty of which they all say...
to know what loved ones look like without having to feel them...
to understand what it means when people say 'u look wonderful today'...
thus are the simple desires of the blind!

to hear the various notes of music...
to listen to the chirpings of those beautiful birds...
to know what the first rains sound like....
to dream as ur love whispers those 3 words...
thus are the heartfelt desires of the deaf!

to sleep in the loving arms of a mother...
to argue with a screaming dad...
to play and fight alike with siblings...
these are the blessings that orphan kid never had...
thus are the longing desires of the alone!

to eat that candy the other kids are having...
without the fear of falling sick...
the chance to pamper that craving sweet tooth...
without the terror of that extra prick...
thus are the sweet desires of a juvenile diabetic!

to walk around without any support...
to stand tall and see what it feels...
not ever having to face those 'following' eyes,
of people around when they see u on wheels...
thus are the desires of the crippled!

and yet we all have our own desires...
though some may seem simple, while others profound...
but 'sans' desires, life would be nothin...
cos they are the threads by which our dreams are bound!

thus are the desires of people..of dreams..of life---thanks to which we are here today...
alive and hoping...
alive and dreaming...
alive and living....



PS: i had written this piece a long while ago and some of you might have already read it on my then-functional-blog "raindrops on roses"
but for some reason it triggered off a strange sense of nostalgia as i read it today and so i thought of reposting it here.
i apologise for the usage of harsh words like 'blind' , 'deaf' and 'crippled' instead of a more subtle 'challenged' or 'impaired'...but ive used them so that one does not ignore the intensity of the situation.
because no matter what they say, it still is a strong blow and a harsh world for those who have to face it!!
