Greatest desire

I do not wish of wealth and wine

neither do I care for illustrious fabrics.

Ever since the beginning, I have been waging wars,

building monuments, making literature,

shaping history, spreading love,

bestowing favours, protecting fellow beings,

seeking help, creating and later destroying my creations,

only to be understood by a few I care for.

From primitive till the future, which is yet to come,

a lot has been done and is being done

and yet I was never understood by a few I care for.

Greatest desire of mine is always realised

after I leave or better, in my absence.

For all my strives had only hoped for one prize,

if only I was understood in my presence.
