I wish I was like Dumbledore

I wish I was like Dumbledore

(though there are many ways, in which I would want to be like him but)

Today, here, I talk about the beautiful privilege of storing thoughts

I wish I was like Dumbledore

(though I wouldn’t mind all other wonderful traits and magical powers but)

Today, here, I talk about the amazing power to lighten my cobwebbed brain

I wish I was like Dumbledore

(though there is actually nothing that I don’t like about him but)

Today, here, I yearn for a pensieve, a bowl to store my train of thoughts

I wish I was like Dumbledore

(though his charisma and mastery are qualities to die for but)

Today, here, I beg for a wand that lets me store memories like vlogs

I wish I was like Dumbledore

To be able to revisit situations and places, to be able to relive the past

To behold myself as a third person, to watch my life as a story

To keep cleaning the cache regularly,

To reboot, to restart and to refresh

I wish I was like Dumbledore

(not that all his mightiness and magic do not make me greedy but)

Today, here, I desire to have a pensieve, a magic so unique, a power so magnificent

I wish I was like Dumbledore
