Look , see , imagine , regret , learn

Look ,
Look towards the sky
How big it is
How endless it seems
How deep it means ,with the clouds in it
The glimpse of some extreme spiritual idea.

See ,
See those groups of birds
how small they look .
We thought , we are the only superior
But see ,
How free they are .
How extremely they feel the feeling of joy.

Imagine ,
Imagine the roughness and toughness of their journey
Imagine those losses they have gone through.
Imagine , how difficult it must have been to travel these miles
But they don't seem to be angry or haughty with the fact
The divine song they sing defines
their greatness and their gratitude towards their companion whom they lost .

Regret ,
I regret for carrying those fake dumb pride of every weak achievements.
I regret for carrying the hollow anger
Loaded tears
Bundles of grudges
I regret for being a disappointed child
I regret for being another boast full dummy ,
In the generation of dummies .
I regret for not being a bird like them .

I'll learn ,
Some day , one day , today , tomorrow
I'll learn ,
We will learn
A defeated pessimist will learn
A fulfilled optimist will learn
The youth will learn
We all will learn
To be great like them , to greet like them , to be vast like them .
My poems will learn
To be simple like them
From the inferiors , the labelled superior,
will learn to live like them .
