Waiting On A Wish

I’m writing to complain,
that my wish has not come true,
I’ve had it up to here,
so please, tell me what to do.

I was told I shouldn’t speak it,
but it’s getting out of hand,
it’s a year since I first made it
and I couldn’t understand

if perhaps the candles flickered
and I wished a bit too soon,
but I’d really like my birthday wish,
to go with my balloon

today’s a day for presents
as I celebrate my age,
but instead I’m waiting on a gift
smudged letters on the page

To our parents far and wide,
I hope you’re happy that you lied,
there’s no magic touch, I thought as much
Children’s pride

Still waiting on a couple of my birthday wishes, just thought I’d share the thought. Hope you enjoyed (not actually my birthday but hey ho).

  1. Wishes and dreams are things we should enjoy but it feels like people want to stifle others. I hope your wishes as you grow are things that will happen for you.
