Wishful Thinking (Published at Spillwords)

I wish I could be satisfied,
grateful as time just passes by,
emotions are intensified,
while living in an empty lie.

I wish mistakes were rectified,
forgiveness leads to second tries.
Let happiness invade and guide,
so haunting memories all die.

I wish my thoughts were classified,
to not slip up with quick replies,
my voice could whisper deep inside,
where sentiments lay and reside.

I wish my scorn was pacified,
so inner peace could touch the sky.
Euphoric visions open wide,
and manifest before my eyes.

I wish daydreams were gratified,
held expectations floating high,
opposing views all cast aside,
so harmony can always fly.

I wish all delights amplified,
so that my mind stops asking “why?”
Pray disappointments all subside,
and tears of joy are all I cry.

– Grace Y. Estevez- Reddy
