I want to be like…

a poem by Sudarshan Madhav Karhale

Like a bird’s feather,
I want to float in the air;
Lose the weight of responsibilities,
Nothing to care.

Like a forest fire,
I want to go wild
Chasing my dreams,
Without having listening to
The worldly schemes.

Like a delicate butterfly,
I want to be cheerful,
Though might be a short life,
I shall be grateful.

Like a mighty lion,
I want to be fearless;
Face challenges with bravery,
Fight fiercely against treachery.

Like a bald eagle,
I want to soar in the skies;
Foresee the distant future
To prevent myself from demise.
