Wishes and Reality
By Martha L.

I wish time would allow me to finish everything I start to write.
I wish I could feel peace of mind, knowing everything will be all right.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have no distractions, no obligations?
Wouldn’t it be nice not to worry so much about life’s complications?

This is real life where humans are required to do humane things.
This is real life, comprised of hard work, sometimes stress and tragedies.

Although time might not seem long enough, the free time that I have is a luxury.
Although there’s negativity, the strength to get through it makes life seem lovely.
