close your eyes
make a wish.
The great thing about wishes is that after a certain age they come with no expectation of fulfillment. In other words we wish for things, yet never really expect them to come true. And if by chance they do come true, a small part of us is grateful for the time we took to wish upon that thing, but a large part is astounded at the coincidence. Many honour and value their wishes. Many wish at certain times of the day, into wells, over birthday cakes. But a wish does little to accomplish anything. A wish is more like a psychological acceptance of something that you are striving to achieve. Whether you admit it to yourself or not does not always determine its probability of coming true. I guess people wish because they want to believe that someone somewhere is listening and wants them to have a happy life. Although I don't have faith in a higher power, I still find myself making a lot of wishes.
I wish I could grow up faster
I wish I my life was more permanent
I wish I could be happy with my body
I wish I didn't have anxiety
I wish that I had closer friends
All of these things I want, but I know it is going to take more than wishes to conquer them.
