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
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.
