I Want…

I want to be it all,
bring in great success.
Want to be night fall,
give much needed rest.

I want to be the sun,
make all dull things bright.
Want to be the one,
transform “wrongs” to “rights”.

I want to be pure hope,
fight away all screams.
Want to help hearts cope,
paint beautiful dreams.

I want to offer trust,
unlock every cage.
Want to polish rust,
turn to a new page.

I want to be insight,
that kisses bowed heads.
Want to bring warm light,
let love touch and spread.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy
