What's your dream?





What’s your dream?
I asked a politician
He replied with arrogance,
I wish to overthrow this regime
and capture the power
Sitting in opposition bench
makes taste of life sour

What’s your dream?
I asked an actor
He replied with intelligence,
I wish to outsmart the legends
and create my own empire
Enjoy the limelight
till I grow mad or expire

What’s your dream?
I asked a sportsman
He replied with diligence,
I wish to break all the records
that have been made
No one should ever come
closer in the parade

What’s your dream?
I asked a common man
He replied with despondence,
I wish to collect my scattered dreams
love, career, family, friend
Days turned slowly into years
but wait doesn't seem to end

A beautiful and thought-provoking poem, Deependra. I'm sure we all have scattered dreams, but we don't all turn them into such fine poetry.

Nice poem....one good thing about the common man, generally speaking, is that he/she has to deal with less ego compared to the other categories you presented.
