My three wishes.
If I had a lamp in my hands,
And I rubbed it
A genie would appear,
Giving me three wishes.
Here’s what I would say.
For wish one, I would say
For me to be able to walk.
To be able to feel sand between my toes,
As I walk along a beach.
To be able to walk along beside my friends,
As we are heading to class
Or as we are carrying shopping bags.
For wish two, I would say
For me to become a successful writer,
So my words will flow through and
So I can speak to so many people
Around the world, in different languages
But one in the same.
For the third and final wish, I would say
For me to be closer to God and obtain spirituality.
So that I can become a better person,
Not just as a Christian but as a genuine person
So that one day,
I will be able to walk through the pearl gates of Heaven,
Where I will be able to walk,
Where I will be a successful writer,
Where I will be closer to God,
And where I will be reunited with my deceased family.
