If Life Were A Wish...

If life were a wish
I would wish it all the same
Because in the end
Life is one big game
And the hand that you're dealt
Carries the people that you love
And I remember how I felt
After every single hug
So for your information
I don't want a wish
I'd rather stay the same
In the life I was dished

I liked it a lot; it was short and to the point but withheld a deeper meaning. i agree with dolphincrazy226. It's a challenge to do that, but you managed it fairly well. Good job and I hope to continue reading more of your work.

they say short poems are the hardest to write because you have to much to say, and yet need to pack it all down.  kudos to you, you did a great job keeping the rhyme scheme up with the rythm. and the message rings clear:)  though i do question that last word "dished"  i know it might have been hard to find a rhyme, but it just doesn't fit with the rest of the poem, but the imagery is sound:)  great job and keep writing!

To be honest, the rhyming is, well, not so good in this. The premisce is good, I just think it could be more flushed out that it is.

You're rather cynical!  But sometimes its best to be happy with what we have.  I like your rhythm; you could almost put it to music.
