Tough Wishes

Tough Wishes short poem

Photo by David Jakes

They aren’t half as malicious as you make them to be,
not half as cruel as your intentions can be.

Gullible and docile, with wits so fragile, you wish you had been kinder.
You toss and turn, till vicious they burn, the cauldron of the mind at work.

Words like spears, scalding ears…till time runs out.

You wish for a wheel that you could spin just once,
Fix some bruises, soothe some burns.

You wish hard.
You wish you hadn’t.
