Wishes waft warily
Warbling with the wind
Some are eager to soar
Others lurk by the door
Some gleam like dewdrops
Others bury themselves in sand
Some embrace and enamor
Others yearn to taste glamor
Vying with each other to be seen
In the relentless race of growth
Love and success meet and clash
Traversing together only to crash
The red wish pushes ahead
Forgetting its pernicious passion
That rides on the mighty waves
Whose latent power never saves
The white wish waits patiently
Smiling softly to herself
Watching your antics with zeal
Knowing well she would heal.
