Old Wishes 💫

Image result for wishes

 I used to wish for a lot,  I used to wish I could be skinny,

Used to wish for a whole bunch of friends, but who really needs that many?

I used to wish for rainbows and that everyday could be sunny,

Used to wish for no problems in my life, used to wish I had a lot of money,

I used to wish to be beautiful in someone else’s eyes,

Used to wish that people took the time to really get to know me and my mind,

I used to wish for more time with my father, and I’ll be honest, I don’t wanna let that wish go,

I wish I could hear his laugh again, he had the best laugh, that much I know,

I used to wish I could speak eloquently, but now I just prefer to just write it all,

Used to wish I could be more appealing, I used to wish I wasn’t so tall,

I used to wish I could sing beautifully, I used to wish I wasn’t so shy,

I used to wish all these things and more, but now I no longer need to wish or wonder why,

I’m amazing the way I am, I’m such a dope girl,

Finding a friend in me will light up your world,

I’m a sweetheart, I’m creative and I no longer consider my sensitivity a flaw,

I’ve been called the life of the party and my corny jokes will leave you in awe,

I work hard and I love even harder, I’m passionate and have grown smarter,

I’m a dreamer and I tend to overthink,

Now handling life’s curve balls with grace, so now I swim instead of sink,

This mind is great and this melanin severely pops, and as a child of the Most High, I can never be stopped
