I wish I could see
The change so many have tried.

I wish I could see
All tears we have cried.

I wish I could see
So many things:

The past
The future
The times I've succeeded
The times others tried
The ones I miss
The ones I'll never see again

I wish I could see
My life flash before me

I wish I could see
What I've so wanted to see

I wish I could see me


The author's comments:
Almost a riddle, this odd piece was composed for a creature not unlike myself. In confinement, this being wants to succeed at what others around her have failed, and to know what she looks like.

I'd be scared to see me.... But very thoughtful poem.
