Here is a poem I wrote for a friend a couple of years ago. When I read it now it seems funny. But back then it had power. However, I wouln’t want to explain the point behind it because then it won’t be that fun. 😛
Time changes. Doesn’t it? Sometimes I WISH I could go back to being a child. I say this because this poem reminds me and a friend of mine of a cartoon we used to watch when we were kids. It was called Dragon Tales. Ring a bell? These day what I try to do is make my siblings watch it instead or other horrible cartoons they have these days. Good ol’ days. Sigh. Well here goes! 😀
I wish I wish with all my might,
To have a heart as pure as the morning light.
In this era of ignorance, the darks we must fight,
Forever, let our good deeds shine through the night.
Violence,hatred, racism, major problems,
Not one, not two, maybe even more than five,
Continuously and permanently add misery,
to our dear little life.
In the lane of hopelessness we can take flight,
But questioned we’ll be for being able to fight.
I watch joy be overshadowed with sadness,
In the silence of the night,
With all the inexplicable thoughts,
I yet not let my hope take flight.
I still wish and wish with all my might,
To shine with hope as beautiful as the morning light.
