I Wish

I wish life was just so easy-
like a path in the forest, designed with magical shortcuts
and secret hints that barely push you past the obstacles that confront you.

I wish these obstacles would come to life
Go against their cowardice ways and stare me in the face
This way I'll become accustom to them,
Still loathe them..but know they will only make me stronger in the end.

I wish to become stronger, I wish this because along with strength comes success
The kind of success people can only hope for
The kind of success people *Wish* for, I want it now
I want to feel success, I want to get to know success
I want to learn every aspect of the complex feature.

And lastly, I wish for fear
Yes fear... I enjoy the emotion, it means I'm close
at the point were everything I ever wanted is slowly gravitating towards me
All I have to do now is reach.

Suddenly this path he had wished upon became covered with leaves
The forest he had lived in his whole life had disappeared
He did not have a perfect path, and could not overcome the obstacles
Now he stands in the middle of nowhere...Gazing upward
He could not move
He could not talk
All he could do was wish

Wrote this right before the 2007-2008 Nba Playoffs. For some reason this just came out of me after I saw a commercial. I like it, actually went to number 1 under "Lifes Paths" section of Helium.com.
