I Wish There Was Some Way For Me To Tell You This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   I wish

there was some way

for me to tell you how

to paint the picture

you dream of



I wish there was

some way

that you could see

the colors I see



I wish

that I could hand you a rainbow

that I could hand you the paintbrush

and tell you to dream



I wish there was some way

to cross this barrier of time and age

and teach you all the lessons

without the pain



But you don't know enough to listen

I don't know enough to teach

I do know how to paint a picture

and this flick of brush I pass on to you



Paint your picture bright

Paint the sky your favorite color

I will show you how to start

But then you must choose your way
