I wish that i was tall and handsome
But alas i am short and stubby.
People in the streets call me fat.
But y’know i am only slightly chubby.
I wish that i was more out going
Instead of being an over sensitive guy
And even though i know the answer
I still ask myself the question Why?
I wish that i was a higher power
Than i could cure all diseases.
Than the people that i love and cherish
Will no longer have to die.
My eyes would shine and sparkle with happiness
And no have to cry.
I wish that my mother and father stop arguing
And just talk to one another.
Because they did love each other once upon a time.
They live in the same house just not together.
The house is surrounded by very stormy weather
I wish that the earth was flat.
Than i could push all the bad people over the edge
I would listen to them screaming all the way down
I know it is wrong but i think i would enjoy that sound
I wish that i was a prize fighter
Fighting for the heavyweight title
Instead of being a world champion wimp
But i suppose it could be worse.
I could wake up as the pulp fiction gimp
I wish that people of different races and religion
Could all just be at peace.
But all they do is fight because of creed and different
But we are all human beings of the same kin
I wish that i could see things in black and white
Because sometimes distorts the starkness
And though though i enjoy the light
I also welcome the darkness
I wish that my pen would stop moving around the paper
But it likes to form words
But sometimes the words aren’t quite right
And i need to take a rest
But still my pen continues to write
It can sometimes be a real pest
I wish that i was more popular
Than i could hang with all the cool people
I could bask in the limelight
And smell the decadence and wealth
But at the same time i like to live behind the curtain
I wish that there were no more wars
But mankind has been fighting each other
Ever since they started to live in caves
It is now 2017 so people lay down your weapons
And start to fucking behave
I wish that i was famous
My face would grace the cover of all the magazines
I could be a celebrity for no particular reason
Just like that family of Kardashians
I could have my own television series
For way too many seasons
I wish that a had a pet
A cat or maybe a dog
Than i would have to be a responsible adult
If i owned a dog i would have to feed it take it for walks
and pay huge bills at the vet
So on second thought i don’t really want a pet
I wish that i was a man of mystery
But i am just your average joe
I have a normal job and live in an ordinary house
I mow the lawn and take out the trash
Just like everybody else
And they is the way that i like it
I wouldn’t change not even a bit
Except maybe …..
What do you wish for?
Go ahead and make a wish
You never know it might come true
But it more than likely wont
Just close your eyes and make a wish
But don’t say it out loud
Keep it to yourself
