I wish Today

I wish Today
That the skies be filled with birds
Flying over the clouds
As empty broken cages
Wait to be thrown away
I wish

I wish Today
That classrooms be filled
Instead of prison cells
That the rains fill up the wells
Where thirsty lips hit the dust
I wish

I wish Today
That battles are won by both sides
Before the first bullet is fired
And the world I live wakes up
from the shackles of agony,
I wish

I wish Today
That poetry fills every day
and music starts dancing in our hearts
That kids learn to love
Before they are taught to pray
I truly wish

I wish Today
That people choose the equality of man
over the inequality of religions
That we all keep one hand free
for someone to hold and stand next to us
I wish Today with all my heart
I wish that it happens
I truly wish
Do you?
