A Wish


By:- Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

I wish I was,
A girl,
Young, carefree, 
No responsibilities;
Seamless horizons,
Running wild,
Getting knocked down,
Chasing again,
Careless & carefree,
Gay abandonment,
Laissez faire,*
I wish I was
Still…. A girl.


Ignorant, naive,
Yet cautious;
A little haughty,
Carte blanche,**
Unrestrained indulgence,
I wish I was
Still…. A girl.


Doting mother, 
Lover, wife,
Considerate companion,
Daughter, sister;
Restraint and liability,
Are now a part of my
Identity… Always
Striving for perfection;
Passion my stimulus,
Love and obeisance
my reward.
Ahh…! I wish
I was
Still…. A girl.

*Laissez faire – indifferent; the policy of leaving things to take their own course, without interfering

**Carte blanche-  blank cheque
