Trust me, I know this stinks, but I hope you guys can review anyway. Flame all you like, but I would prefer constructive criticism.

I Wish

I wish I could write something

So meaningful it could

Make others cry,

But I can't.

I wish I could write something

So touching it could

Make countries throw down their arms

And make peace,

But I can't.

I wish I could write something

So beautiful it could

Make the blind

See

When they cannot,

But I can't.

I wish I could write something

So amazing it could

Work the imaginations of millions,

But I can't.

I wish I could write something

So compassionate and warm,

So filled with love that is could

Make orphaned children

Feel not so alone,

But I can't.

I wish I could write something

So one-of-a-kind that it could

Live on in history

Forever,

But I can't.

I wish I could write something

So heartfelt that it could

Show those lonely people

Out there,

That although they haven't been through

What you have been through,

Someone is trying to understand,

That someone does care,

But I can't.

I wish I could write something

So extraordinary it could

Change the world

But I can't.

All I can do is try.
