Some might pray for a good night’s sleep.
Others pray for a night full of tweets.
Prayers for school holiday looking at the black clouds
Is what the little ones always wish for.
There might be some prayers to meet a long-lost friend
And some might even pray that they never get to meet one.
The bus / train should be on time, prays the career person
All in all, these tiny prayers make us human.
Sachin should hit a century today
Mama should not blast me any day
Friend should return all the marbles today
Some of the few thoughts and prayers that happen everyday.
The blogger wants a lot of comments
The politicians don’t want criticisms
Vacations, dresses, cars, computers, cameras
Are a few among the prayers to reach God.
Don’t you think that all these are momentary
And after one thing gets done, the other becomes a priority ?
These are certainly prayers
Which bring pleasure, not happiness.
The pleasure is for the moment
After the moment of enjoyment, loses its charm.
The heart starts yearning for something else
For which prayers are on like a bee swarm.
But happiness is something
Far beyond the circle of small pleasures
The heart is happy to be alive
To enjoy every moment of life
So, lets pray for happiness
Even in the threshold of difficulties
Let the heart learn to distinguish
Between the pleasures and be happy.
Give me Happiness, whatever may come
Give Happiness for the loved ones
Oh Heart, Learn to be Happy
Every moment of your waking life.
Give me the strength to walk through
Difficult times of struggles and woes
Let happiness cover me like a fog
To keep me going, strong and long.
