No cup of tea is large enough, or book long enough, to suit me.
-C.S. Lewis


Some people wish their lives away.
We wish for things we do not have-
Money.
Fame.
Beauty.
Sometimes we wish for
Impossible dreams,
Where the dead sister comes to life,
Or we relive the past in a different way.
Everyone wishes.
Everyone dreams.
But why do we waste away,
Longing for things that do not come?
Why don’t we look to the now?
Enjoy what’s here?
Why can’t we fight
And make some of those wishes
Come true?

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

The theme has astuteness, I like it.... nice!

It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

I love this poem, wishes and dreams are beautiful things.  But they can't always become true and you shouldn't waste away dwelling upon them.

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.

Reach for the the moon for if you fail you land amongst the stars :)

this is so true!! And very direct about what we do in our daily lives. I guess the reason why we wish is so that we can continue are little fantasy fairytale since we were kids. And in a way never grow up . And i love your comments :)
