My Wish


My mind wanders
For some wonders
Desires flood my mind
Where I am
What I am
Where my eyes is seeing
Goes beyond the present
So I constantly wish for something
Some are achievable, few are real
A lot are by faith
But somehow the wishes keep coming

Most times I wish I am the best
I wish I am Numero Uno
I wish I am a king, president,
Senator, business mogul
I wish I am powerful, great and rich
I wish I have children and large estates
I just keep on wishing
But I have realized that wishes are only real
If opportunities are tapped
If sacrifices are made with great patience
If those wishes are Godly inspired
Otherwise our wishes will remain dormant
Just like a weird passing dream
Before we realize the wishes are gone

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
