I at times wish life was black and white. That there were no blurry or grey lines.
I wish people would say what they mean and mean what they say as opposed to lies and stringing each other along.
I wish the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow was a true story; only because it leaves a smile on peoples faces.
I wish people smiled more.
I wish we thought of others more than ourselves, or at least as much as we think of ourselves.
I wish we would all be willing to serve each other, then love would easily win.
I wish we genuinely cared for each other, and not this pretend game we play. Clearly acting is not for Hollywood only.
I wish we would keep it real with each other, not walk around each other on eggshells as if we are delicate pieces of glasses. I don’t mean being cruel, just being honest.
I wish we would stop lying to ourselves as much as we do. Trying to sell to ourselves things we know deep down are not true. Trying to fit in or keep up even though we are not about that life.
I wish we would judge less and show mercy more instead. I wish we would be quick to want to understand than criticize.
I wish life was black and white at times, then maybe adulting would be that much easier.
I wish love, and not hate ruled. I wish love reigned. I wish love was the very thing we all aspired to. Because then, the world really would be a better place.
If only wishes were horses…
