Treasure Island

Suman Kumar Das


As I Wish!


Papa says, ‘My son will be doctor’.
But Mom is in favour of engineer.
Uncle expects me to be sport star.
Again Aunt’s desire is singer.

All give me toffee. A hope I see,
On their eyes while feeding my tummy.
But wish I to fly with bird.
And to run with hart’s herd!

Miss teaches science, Sir maths,
School is to make me learn all the arts.
Can ye teach me to build mountain,
Or how to dig fountain!

Is there anyone to ask me?
What I want to be!

    “When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” -John Lennon

    This poem is wonderful, thank you. (Report) Reply

    Hi, I just wrote a big long comment and lost it when I went to post. I love the two lines before the last two. Try reading it with the ending being here. Can ye teach me to build mountain, Or how to dig fountain! Course they can't. Only the inner soul knows it's own mission, but the collective ego of society attempts to box us in. If a child is allowed to fly and run as the hart, not have the imagination an wonder destroyed, then the water of life can explode into the sun a fountain of life... Anyway, I said it better the first time. Just think it has much more of a powerful punch ending there. What do you think? (Report) Reply
