  1. Sonnet – I Wished

    and all of the things I wished for came true;
    I thanked God for showing me his mercy
    but was aware that I still felt empty
    as everything around me felt brand new.

    From seeds, long since planted, nothing grew;
    those to whom I gave my love desert me
    as they each tried and failed to convert me
    before deciding that our time was through.

    I have tried without success to earn back
    lost love which I could never call my own.
    I am tired of this constant life attack;
    it is time to see more than I am shown.

    You may have it all, but you lose your view,
    when all of the things you wish for come true.
