I Wish

“I want to know your hearts desire.”

I feel a little like the beauty queen contestant who wants peace in the world. Well, what’s wrong with that?

I wish for every child of earth enough to eat, water to drink, someone to love, and love you back, a roof over your head at night, a yard to tend and garden, too, labor enough to make you tired, a soft pillow and dreams so sweet, laundry flapping on the line, rocking chairs on the porch, books to read stacked high, no one rich and no one poor, and never a one in need that someone, somewhere was willing to be a friend in deed.

In a perfect world
there would never be tears
that someone could not dry.

  1. Love this, especially the concluding haiku. I love the fact that the wish is realistic: it doesn’t ask for what many have suggested is “perfection”, but for a great world where everyone would be perfect for his or her burden… so much so that even the burden would bring the perfect happiness.

  2. World peace…the socialists call it brotherhood, the Christians called it fellowship, the zealots call it unattainable. I call it necessary, essential, building block, necessity; smile.

  3. Its what I would like to see. What an excellent thought for the day, hell, for a lifetime. I know that so many want the same, its a shame we can’t seem to make it happen. I’ll keep trying if you will!!! Thanks for participating, I really enjoyed this.
