I wished to become rich,
But after seeing his wealth locked,
I thought it is better to be a monk,
But he was chasing a woman.
So I thought to become a teacher,
But then the books scared me.
So thought a lawyer’s job is easy,
But the courts were full of criminals.
For sure business must be good,
But saw a trader ready to cheat.
Doctor?? I thought yes,
Seven years of training!! Oh no!
Then why not engineer, I thought
But dreaded the powerful contractors. So, No..
Then I pondered to become a driver,
But instantly gave up after seeing a truck in the river.
Oh! I have forgotten my farms..
Better go back there..
