Treasure Island

Chris Clingman

(01/28/1993 / Out of God hands)

I wish


I WISH
I wish I could be as free as the mighty intelligent gray wolf
always running never staying in one place for to long

I WISH
I wish I could be as beautiful as the red rose
watching people pass by not seeing my beauty

I WISH
I wish I could see the world as the mighty eagle sees it
I want to see the world by flying high in the sky
watching people let theri lives pass them by

AND I WISH
people would just slow down long enough to see the beauty all around them
and just enjoy what they already have

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
