i wish

i could fly away

into the clouds of dreams

i wish

i could achieve goals

that i was too scared to fulfill

i wish

i was brave enough to do what was right

even when the world fell to pieces around me

i wish

i could be proud of who i am

and how far i have come on the road of life

but as they said

when it all crashed and burned around me

there are dreams that

could

not

be

but maybe

there's a smoky wisp of hope

that they can
