A wistful poem about dreams and wishes, about life and its purpose by Dr T Rama.
In the wide expanse of the cosmos
In the midst of awesome forces
Where there is no beginning or end
Where the stars shine bright and extend
I am searching for a place to ascend.
I often wondered as a child
What lay beyond the sky so mild
What could be the purpose of life
How could I make it better in strife
And find for myself a place in the stars.
I wish I were a different kind
With natural talent refined
That could make me stand out in a crowd
To hold my head and do others proud
To help fix for me a place in the stars
I think the cosmos is getting me ready
Sending me signals to be steady
To continue to venture and strive
So I can thrive and it can contrive
To provide for me a place in the stars.
