How I Wish

There’s always a time when you think
Its that time when something occurs
And you cant find a link
A link which would explain
Why everything you ever possessed, you couldn’t retain

At that time you please
If you could only just wish
In that same way I thought
And to you this poem I brought.

How I wish I could
Do things I would
How I wish I could choose between heaven and hell.
How I wish I could choose between say and tell.
How I wish I could choose between
Darkness or the cold within.
How I wish I could choose between clothes or skin.
How I wish I could choose between crazy or mad
How I wish I wouldn’t be confused between mom and dad.
How I wish I could fly in the air
How I wish I could everything repair
How I wish there was no despair.
How I wish I could choose between country and self
How I wish I could choose between the TV and the bookshelf.
How I wish there was no strain
If only I could make choice between sadness and pain.
How I wish I could vanquish the desire
Of never getting tired
And accept the fact that I too will be old
And everything I touch will not become gold.

The self is confusing
The more you give it
The more it will want in taking.
Even if wishes I would be grant few
I would want to make everything I wish true.

How I wish I could always be right
How I wish I could choose between day and night
Because both of them are a beautiful sight.
How I wish I could with everyone make amend
How I wish I would always have a girlfriend.
How I wish I could tell
That I always felt
I was more mature than you ever thought
I am the one you always sought.
How I wish I could identify the clever and the fool
How I wish I could choose between home and school.
How I wish I could stitch
Each and every one of my glitch.
How I wish I would never be glamorous
But instead always be humorous!

How I wish I would not easily trust
And identify what was unfair and what was just.
How I wish I would never be political
And not play the game
Of not being honourable
And do anything for fame.
How I wish I would never scream
How I wish I would always sweet-dream.
How I wish I could choose
And with all my enemies make a truce.
How I wish I would never lie
How I wish I would never die.
How I wish I could sacrifice all my desire
And at peace, lay on my pyre.
Shed myself as a whole
And give way to my soul.
How I wish I would never wish
And always for the world create a niche.
How I wish I could never forget
How I wish I would never regret
How I wish I could always hold
Memory close to my hand
And remember that time is told
To vanish like footprints on sand.
