Life is worth spending time alone to dream about making the impossible possible.

1. Crowds of people everywhere,

   Different colours on skins smeared,

   Joyful hearts and cheerful shouts

   Are what this is all about.


2. People here- both black and white,

    No one hates and no one spites,

    Noise and kites and waves and clothes

    Are what this is all about.


3. Smiles to grace and faces to gaze,

    No signs of bad and neither of gloom,

    Colours and colours like flowers in bloom

    Are what this is all about.


4. Songs- sang with voice and soul,

    Dance moves and grooves- all for show,

    Chats and talks- all full of love

    Are what this is all about.


5. Colours ever bright and colours ever dark,

    All the people have their marks,

    Colours as pleasing as those on clowns

    Are what this is all about.

Imagine a festival where colours are all around and all races and nationalities of people are celebrating. Imagine this big outdoor event for both young and old full of dancing and singing and music and joy and cheer and no troubles, just a celebration of coloured powder being sprinkled about and paint being smeared on victims and when evening arrives, the fireworks and the bonfires and the stories and the lights. If only I could make that come true, come alive...
