I wished

I wished for a silver sword
I worked towards it without a word
There were thorns in my path
I was ambushed many times
But, to abandon the path never crossed my mind

I wished

I wished for a silver sword
I worked towards it without a word
There were thorns in my path
I was ambushed many times
But, to abandon the path never crossed my mind
As, I knew the sword was meant to be mine.

As, I lay my fingers on its cold blade
I could not rejoice
There were many around me,
With a sword like mine.
I realized how tender were the life’s chords.

I decided to distinguish mine
I sharpened its blade with my passion
Which would not dull
Even with the sands of time.

But, in my journey I came across a crevice
That held the golden sword.
A tantalizing prelude
That very few wished to seek.

There were thorns in my path
I was ambushed many times
But, to give up never crossed my mind.
As, I lay my hand on it
I stood out
I felt proud
But, the only question that lingered was

Did I do it for fame?
Or is there end to this game?
