The Best Present

Sunset in Vancouver (Picture taken from my hotel window)

The Best Present

I wanted love,
fame and prosperity.
And I didn't just look above,
But worked with sincerity.

I got a bit of all.
Love came and went by
When I stopped to enthrall.
On emotions cannot you rely!

Fame was fun,
Even if small,
But when alone,
I couldn't stand tall.

Prosperity, I wished bigger
But even though modest
Attracted many a gold digger
Leaving me depressed.

But from disappointments,
Self-doubts and depression
Came the best of presents.
I call it a 'clarity of vision.'
