Hi another challenge  
Something different...  If you could suddenly be granted one wish from a genie what would it be and why??  One wish only, and it doesn't have to better the world, it can be selfish and no one would think less of you....
Interested?
Please post in this forum only..

Hi Isis  

*shoot...I was hoping
to find the Genie that
was granting the usual
3 wishes  *

If I had one
wish...and only
one...

It would be for
families to be united.

For without our families
we are less than when we
began life.

It is in our nature to
become more...not less!  


MagnoliaBlue

* Sorry fellow poets...but my muse
left the country with my love(heart)
and I am unable to write anything decent...one leaving is bad enough
...but when they are both
gone...well, you know!  
I will be happy and able to write
when they both return once again.*

Finally inspiration has hit me. here it is 2/3's rhyme.
====================================
Every day I waited for the chance
To have the power to control my life
To wish for true romance
or put an end to all my strife.
Now the genie awaits my request,
I am thinking of all the things I could change
Is there any possession out of reach I desire? Such a test
To decide on one single thing in my life to rearrange.

Should I wish for money to keep me forever secure?
I don't want material possession, I don't have the room.
I could a bigger house, but all this wealth is not me.
One wish, to live forever then watch everyone
I care for dying before my eyes. I could always wish that
all my loved ones lived forever, but I would
never inflict that on them.
What if that wish denied them Heaven.

With this wish would I change my history?
So unpredictable a wish, besides I believe in faith,
That wish might bring untold happiness or just misery.
I think I will wish for contentment and a loving mate,
to live a full life before I depart from this earth.
With this wish granted I will stand proud at heaven's gate,
Though all life crumbles to ashes, there will gold in my mound of dirt.


"An abyss that lasted creation A circus complete with all fools
Foundations that lasted the ages Then ripped apart at their roots"
joy division

Bravo Minoque simple words, yet perhaps that is more than one wish?? Or is it just no one hurts any more?  I'll go with the latter..
Magnolia Blue, familes are indeed such an important aspect of our lives, wish more people wouldn't take them for granted!!! Good thoughts hon.
Brian, this was a vision more than a wish hon, but great stuff!!  
My wish..
For no one to have any type of pain  ie. no lonliness, illness, broken hearts, not be betrayed etc.  For mankind to find peace together in all aspects..

I'll tell you this...... No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn.....

One Wish


I only have one wish;
Which is true,
That I understand.
