Romancing the Ideals

Are my ideals too lofty

That I can only romance them

In my dreams.

Or have I become complacent

In the rut of the mundane life

That even the little effort it takes

To practice them

Seem insurmountable.

I keep longing for an ideal world

where everything is just perfect.

Realizing little that

In an ideal world, what is the value of idealists?

They are needed more in this imperfect world

To be a beacon for what can become

When one stands stead fast

Committed to one’s ideals.

I am voting for Rufus D’Souza in the JSW will of steel campaign. Go ahead and choose one story that touches your heart. If you know someone, nominate them with their story. The world now needs more people like these and their stories need to be heard.
