Tell us about a time when everything actually turned out exactly as you’d hoped.
Photographers, artists, poets: show us PERFECT.

That house, that car
that dream job is mine
I can do wonders
With a wave of my magic wand

Pride knows no reason
No logic, no emotion
Looking up at the skies
One forgets the ground under

An inflated ego
Swelling with pride
Strayed by delusion
Claims mastery over nature

Every wave in the ocean
Was created by water drops
Can the wave forget
Its origin, its cause

As we eat that morsel of daily food
Do we spare a thought
For the farmer, the sun, the rain, the plough
The trader, the workers, the driver ,the mother?

So when everything works
Exactly as you had hoped for
Do not forget the unseen efforts
That make miracles happen!
