Treasure Island

Bri Edwards

Wishes For My Future.......[Short; Personal]

To bring my marriage to a pleasant, successful end…
To be, for a few, a true and tolerable friend…
To help someone every day of my life…
To see a world (fat chance! !) without any strife…

To not live too long and not live too poorly…
To eat a healthy diet but have some sweets, surely…
To have health care 'as needed', but not too often…
To have those who oppose me, to me their hearts soften…

To 'see' my only child, Shannon, enjoy life and succeed…
To hear of more people sharing, and fewer with greed…
To grow a few veggies and see lots of birds…
To amuse myself and others as I make poems from words

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I don't mean bring my marriage to an 'end' in a bad way. I can do without growing the veggies (my wife uses enough precious water on non-edibles outdoors) as long as i can still buy food at stores.

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
