Make a Wish


This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 40; the fortieth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "MAKE A WISH"

Make a wish so that
the young and innocent remain so
their bright smiles touching our hearts
their playfulness making us laugh

Make a wish so that
they are not abused
not stripped off their liveliness
let their eyes sparkle and not
bend down with pain & shame

Make a wish so that
all children get equal right
Right to education...to live
Let them breathe, just let them be

Make a wish so that
people rejoice a SHE
let her hold your hand
let her be a daddy's girl
She will stay by you till the end.

Make a wish so that
their future is secure
their hearts are filled with love
not bearing scars of broken trust

Make a wish so that
they get to hear fairy tales
and get kissed good night
not cornered up or beaten up
no nightmares they should see

Make a wish so that
the little buds flower up
to spread joy in abundance
Children are God's Gift, cherish them thus.

  12. Hope the world rejoices with this wish coming true. Women became target today because of pathetic and idiotic laws making morons to act wilder and blinder. A truly sense and connecting poem it is.. Good luck for the BAT 40...
