Making a Wish

Wishing upon a star trying not to fly too far,

Throwing a penny in a well as someone fell,

Wishing on the first full moon trying not to swoon,

Wishing on the turkey’s wish bone trying not to choke,

Catching a falling leaf and wishing on its fall,

Wishing on the eyelash stuck on your scarred face.

So many ways to make a wish, yet none

Imply the necessity for hard work or condone

The wonder and satisfaction that comes from

Being diligent, industrious, and creative proving that none

Can surpass humanity’s ingenuity wherever they come from.

I'm a Canadian whose life has been interesting as I've lived in Developing countries and here. The contrast of law, order, and amenities available to us Canadians (which we take for granted, sometimes) to war torn civil wars is enormous. It leaves an influence upon the soul that cries out for justice. My poetry and writing reflect that and more.
