My Wishes

dandelion

There are many things I wish
to see

One of those is a world free
of poverty

Where no human being will starve
in the streets

Having a place at all tables to
rest and eat

A world full of clean air to
fill our lungs

Where smog is a distant memory
over and done

To see all things respected from
all walks of life here on this earth

We all deserve the same equality
from the moment of our birth

A wish to see a united humanity
striving for the advancement of all

Instead of waging war on each other
watching other human beings cripple
and fall

Wishing the end of the crushing hate
of power and greed

Replaced by compassion and love only
doing noble deeds

Now I watch my wishes float away like
a dandelion carried by the winds of
hope

As I yearn for the day a granter of
wishes will catch it in their scope
