I wish, I hope, I dream

What wish is your wish?

I wish there was more peace
I wish there was more peace
I wish we remembered what it meant to be children-when we became adults
I wish we remembered what it meant to be children-when we became adults
I wish we all had the keys to unlock our dreams
I wish we all had the keys to unlock our dreams
I wish that the simple pleasures were all that we needed to survive
I wish that the simple pleasures were all that we needed to survive
I wish, I hope, I dream-that I never give up on the hope that one day, that one wish will be true-and the world will be a more beautiful place, to run and hide and not worry about never being found.
I wish, I hope, I dream-that I never give up on the hope that one day, that one wish will be true-and the world will be a more beautiful place, to run and hide and not worry about never being found.

What if all our wishes came true?


I wish the world was a more beautiful place, to run and hide and not worry about never being found.

I wish there was a brief summary of peoples characteristics, so when you meet them, you know who they are and if you can handle them.


I wish I knew the moment I stepped onto the wrong path, And maybe I wouldn’t have traveled miles down it before deciding I was in the wrong place.


I wish it was easier to open up to the ones I love, but instead I write everything down.


I wish I was blessed with super powers and was able to keep the house clean and the kids happy and myself happy without feeling like I was neglecting something or someone.


I wish when I was young, I enjoyed being young and made it a point to have a childhood.


I wish I could see into the future and know that everything will be okay and things will work out.


I wish I didn’t disappoint or anger everyone I know, at least once or twice.


I wish I knew before I knew-that I was someone and deserved something.


I wish I was the best mother the best spouse and had firm control over what life has thrown my way.


I wish I could find a job and an employer that sees-I never give up and never give in


I wish things could be easy, just for a little while


I wish I could help everyone that needs a smile today


I wish I was still that invisible girl-because then I knew the people that truly saw me.


I wish I could explain what is wrong when nothing is wrong.


I wish when I am right-I could scream I am not wrong. But I can’t and stutter when I try.


I wish when I slept I felt rested and refreshed, but I am always so tired when the day begins.


I wish I could say sorry and it be enough-but I can’t find the right words to say that I am sorry.


I wish people were less selfish and more willing to see past themselves


I wish I had the answers to all my questions instead of having so much doubt and so much me.


I don’t really wish for anything except I wish, I hope, I dream-that I never give up on the hope that one day, that one wish will be true-and the world will be a more beautiful place, to run and hide and not worry about never being found.

Ah, but then what fun would life be? Part of the enjoyment of life is the mystery or the challenge. Sure it hurts when you get it wrong and the path you choose turns out to be a not so good one, but then that also builds character, makes you stronger, or makes you wiser.

I still enjoyed the hub, though. Keep hubbing!

may all your wishes come true because in doing so they would benefit so many people - i wish people would stop being cruel to animals and I wish there weren't any people in the world who hurt children and old people - thanks for a beautiful read.

H.C Porter 6 years ago from Lone Star State Author

Springboard,

Thanks for your comment and for reading. Life is an adventure, but it could certainly be easier for more people if others thought to be kind rather than cruel :)

Bonny2010

Thanks for your kind words. You are correct, treating children the elderly and animals with more respect, would certainly be an improvement
