I wish I didn’t think the way I do
And could dispel the voices, shrill and shrew
Inside my head rising such a clatter
Sometimes I care, though it doesn’t matter
A voice of reason in the wilderness
A symphony in the stillness
Something needed to bring about order
But that is getting harder and harder

I wish I was not made the way that I am
To make all things want into can
How different life would certainly be
If God had put other stuff into me
To not view things with a slightly shifted slant
If upon losing causes, I did not myself plant
And impulses, not act upon every single one
But what would then be done for fun?

I wish I could change misfortune in the past
And maybe choose different winding paths
Put all wrongs into endless right
To not give in to promise of youthful night
And never knowingly forestall
Anything worthwhile, anything at all
Hindsight is always simply second best
To foresight, everyone’s eternal quest

I wish these, wishes to take wing
I wish these, impossible things

A good write.  I think that all people have such thoughts.  Afterall that is what makes us human.
