I wish

I wish I had a fairy godmother who would monitor my brain waves so as to be able to reduce my reliance on passive verbs. It would be so lovely to have her wave her magic wand and remove such tired sentence constructions from my brain. It would be.

  1. I wish all the myriad of ideas coursing through my mind would manifest itself into a finished and cohesive prose. I wish the disjointed and diffused collection of almost great, but not quite there strands of consciousness could combine into all the words I use to express myself. I wish.

  2. I wish I had three wishes, then that would be enough, I would fill this world with good things and probably each heart with love. And at the end of my second wish, when upon my last, I think I’d wish for three more wishes just to ensure they’d last.

  3. I wish that I did not have to wake up in pain every morning. There is not a day that goes by where this is not the normal start of my day. It doesn’t matter how much time I devote to sleep; pain seems to be my constant companion. I wish I had the capacity of waking up refreshed and energized. Is that too much to ask?

  4. I wish that people would accept change instead of fight it. The amount of oil Americans use will have to change to solve the environmental crisis. However, the oil industry has money and influence, which become a explosive concoction when mixed. It’s workers will not accept losing their jobs easily.

  5. I wish I had not been diagnosed with MS. For that matter, I wish I did not have MS. I wish there was a cure for MS. I wish there was a treatment to reverse the nerve damage I have experienced. I wish I could return to working as a nurse. I wish I was financially independent. I wish my body was whole.

  6. I wish for time to appreciate the moment like Trinity has. She stretches and purrs in utter contentment under the warm sunlight beaming through the window; her black fur shining like polished onyx. I glance at her momentarily feeling a twinge of envy, then storm off to finish the laundry.

      1. Thank you Claire. I just found this website today and already I’m in love with the possibilities. 🙂 ❤
