Author: Pratyush TiwaryAdded: Jan 03 2002Views/Reads: 2968/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
It is a poem reflecting my philosophy about life,and how meaningless we make it.

Give me the sun so bright and warm 

Give me the sand of golden charm 

Give me my sleep from dusk to dawn 

To lie in motherís lap and yawn 

Iíll be happy , the little one says. 

Give me shade from the sun so hot 

Give me the key to nobler thought 

Give me grandchildren wool headed like sheep 

A rocking chair to lull them to sleep 

Iíll be happy ,the old man says. 

Give me the car my neighbour bought 

Give me the job the other guy got 

Give me the thrones of kings and czars 

Give me the moon,give me the stars 

I wont be happy till I have it all 

Who said that? 

You did!
