I Wish...

I wish I had more time for my things,

I wish I had less homework.

I wish I had a better, more muscular body,

I wish I had more time with my girlfriend.

I wish I had better basketball skills.

I wish I had a job with good pay,

I wish I had a clue of what to be when I grow up.


I wish I had a magic wand,

to make all my wishes

come true.

Ballad Of The Lost Notebook

There was no reason to complain,

Because we had the game.

We forgot the notebook,

Because we were on the hook.


We were having so much fun,

We forgot about the sun.

It was too late,

To change the date.


The jellyfish,

Completed our wish.

Time to get a prize,

And we got a big surprise.


We went to the lot,

To find we forgot,

The Notebook,

Which was on the hook.

(Free Verse)

You say you know me,

How I act and what I feel.

Constantly telling me,

'deal with it' or ' you are too selfish'.

If only they knew what I do or how I felt.


One day they won't be able to do that,

Everything will change.

You will regret all you said,

And wish you could rewind time.

Bring back what you love.
