Look at the above words... what do you see? Do you see the shape of a diamond? The image of a flame? Perhaps the shape of a cloud? Wanting... wishing... hoping... dreaming... at their most basic level, these are all the same thing... desires. They can be simple or complex, big or small, ambitious or unassuming. There is as many desires as there is facets in one hundred thousand diamonds, as many as there is stars in the night sky. They can be as simple and unassuming as a candle flame, or as raging and ambitious as a firestorm. When you look at the sky, you see countless stars, stretching out to infinity... is each star an ungranted wish, an unfulfilled dream? Or does each star signify a granted wish, a fulfilled dream, immortalised for eternity as inspiration for those that dare look to the sky for inspiration? A wish, dream, hope or want for every man, woman, child and animal that walks the earth, has ever set foot on this planet, or will follow in our footsteps in due course. Desires give one a will to live, a strive to succeed, something to aim for. Without ambition, without hopes, without dreams, we lack the flame that drives us, we are naught but empty shells, going from day to day, from cradle to grave, from birth to death. Don't pass into the next world with regrets... chase your dreams, never stop hoping, cherish your wishes. Embrace your desires.
