a poem by Deepti

I wish I could be who you want me to be,
I wish I could see things the way you see,
I wish I could do what you want me do,
Please understand this is my life too.
Don’t you see I I have this dream?
This dream of mine is to be free.

To do the things I want to do,
To touch the sky, to kiss the moon.
To do the things that feel so right,
To dream away into the night.
To have no sorrow, have no fear,
To have a smile not a tear.
