No matter how fast you run, how far you go, you can never escape the fate that's befallen upon you.

A wish had come, but now it's gone.
Just as night's transformed into dawn.
The leaves whisper the secret, but dare not tell;
for that would ruin the magic of the wishing well.
The raindrops scatter the hopes and dreams,
beckoning the wishes of others at the seams.
The sly winds push them to take a chance
and soon people forget their personal stance.
They wish the love of their lives may find them some day,
and the evilness of their enemy might simply go away.
They wished of beauty, proving themselves to be vain.
Riches of such quality they had power to reign.
Somewhere in the backs of their mind spoke a soft voice.
Not many could hear it because of temptation's noise.
The voice sang of patience and courage that someday they'll be found.
I chimed of forgiveness where the hatred had crowned.
Hinting of the wonderful treasures within
and love family and friends can awaken.
Not paradise, but a happy place in-between.
Some take for granted the love they'd seen.
The well stands there dazed as no wish has been made,
So many before had wished then ran home; but the wish never stayed.
Why make a wish when everything you need is here?

Sometimes everything you need is right in front of you where you haven't checked because you were too busy looking for something else in the wrong place. Sometimes the best things in life are also the smallest.

Every second is a chance to turn your life around.
Sometimes you have to be your own hero.
You were born an original; don't die a copy.
Smile. It kills them to see you happy.
