More Than Wishes

We can wish, wish, wish
This gift of life completely
Because time
Helps us do as we will,
Not guarding us
Against choices
Poorly made, unwise,
But we have enough power
To set a better
Leading us to complete,
Accomplish worthy goals set
So we may achieve
Purposes existing
Beyond fond wishes;
Happiness and joy
Into every part, aspect,
Of our daily life
Where we become fully
Wishing can guide acts
Selected for good outcomes
With positive effort
That permit our grand
Of difficulties which
May present themselves
When along
Our onward progress
We determinedly continue.
We are gifted
With ample resources
To make
Our dreams into

Today’s PAD Challenge Prompt at Poetic Asides is “Wish.” I think it went off on its own path, but I am okay with it.

I hope all of you are well and coping with whatever variety of social distancing you are experiencing. Remember to keep creating. Also, remember you are loved.
