Wishful Thinking

 

“Stop playing with your food you thwart”

My ears ring as she speaks

A wishful thought fills my mind

If only I could block out everything she says

My head would be a better place.


Why should I eat bread as stale as this?

One that looks like it was made without yeast.

Why should I drink a cloudy tea?

One that looks like it lacks rich milk.


My life as an orphan goes without saying

It’s a paradise for the hopeless but it’s not mine.

I seek more from life than I’ve been given

But I fear I will not be able to fit in.


A larger world presents itself out there

Waiting for me to build up my courage.

I am but a mere sixteen year old,

In two years’ time, I will be able to walk out.

Out there lies my freedom

Out there is where my life shall begin.

You Must Do the Things You Think You Cannot Do

Eleanor Roosevelt
