Wish Upon the Shadowy Darkness
By Sarah Wong
I wish I were an angel,
so I could fly through the grassy plains.
I wish the grassy plains were a meadow with flowers like fierce tigers.
I wish the flowers were made from rainbows,
so I could see them.
But I can’t,
because I am not here.
I am no where.
I wish I was not lost.
I wish I was not confused.
I wish the child inside me could write a poem.
I wish she could hold a pencil.
I wish she could read, but she can’t,
because she is not here.
She is no where.
I wish I wasn’t lost in the shadowy darkness.
But one light can be the end of the blooming flowers.
