If I had met
If I had met Marie Curie,
I would have asked her in fury,
"Was love really worth the price you paid,
as your husband, in the coffin, your dead body laid?"
If I had met Sir Isaac Newton,
I would have asked that human,
"As a farm boy, did you ever dream,
of becoming darkness's light beam?"
If I had met Mahatma Gandhi,
I would have asked him fondly,
"Were you really trying to be impartial?
Was dividing India really essential?"
If I had met Stephen King,
I would have asked him, my voice quivering,
"How deep was your disappointment in Carrie,
even though it was just temporary?"
But alas, I haven't met them,
so, in myself, I want to discover a gem.
Someone who struggles through the stormiest of nights,
a person who doesn't back down from fights.
A person who works hard to fulfill her dreams,
a warrior who is not afraid of extremes!
