Wish Within

Wishing upon a star
won’t take you very far
when you curse the ground
where your life is found.

Why wish you were there
with your life right here
walking away from the fight
wars waging for your light.

Wondering deep in daydreams
weary, reality seems
wanderlusting for freedom
while your chains, you keep them.

Worried and lost
we pay a great cost
withered and beaten
wretched lies were eaten.

Waiting for hope
what can you do
worlds that continue
with or without you.

Winged angels or guru
wild stories of rescue
who’s out there to save us
will deny what’s within us.
