When life gives you lemons, make grape juice, then watch everyone wonder how you did it!


Of many things I could have
Of all that is out there
Looming possibilities
There’s one simple thing I need
Yet I am deprived of
Essential to life
Key to living
One single wish

No one understands
Why I want it
Crave it
Need it
There’s one thing I want
One single wish

In the darkness I lay
A candle lit
Burning down the time
I am allotted
My eyes follow
The pen
As it scrawls
Across the blank white page
My hand trembling
My heart pounding
Yearning for
One single wish

If only
This life would end
I could depart
Gain all I want
Understand myself
Reflect my heart
No longer bound
To the ground
Toiling endlessly
Over nothing
It’s all I need
One single wish

This was obviously when I was in an all-time low of my life. I may not feel the same way now, but if you do, I feel your pain.

All great adventures require some risks.

This is so great! I think the beauty of the poem really lies with what you feel after you read it...what is the wish? Leaving the question hanging helps to relate to the readers. Great work!
