My Shooting Star!

I saw a shooting star in the sky,
And wondered what to ask for me,
-Money, Fame, Success, Love!

Money and Fame made me Work hard for my life,
The more I worked, the more I seemed to want more,
But everything else suffered because of me.

Love I found is scarce these days,
People now-a-day live in the Jet age,
Love for them is a Big Word,
But seldom one understands the meaning.

So I closed my eyes again to ask for something more,
A tear fell from my eye,
Realizing that I had wasted my whole life,
Getting what I never wanted in the first place to begin with.

When I think about it now all I wanted was,
Some happiness and some life to my being,
But I still have a few years to look ahead,
And those, I am never gonna loose.

  5. Hi Fizz,

    A great poem! And an excellent reminder that we may spend many years of our lives chasing external things, which may never really make us happy. Hence, let us seek for true happiness that comes from within and through the joy of living life vibrantly.
