Death Walking

A Missed Chance

I looked
I saw
I wish
I missed

I begged
I prayed
I believed
I failed

I looked
I saw
A wish
A star

I wish
Upon it
I missed
Its gone

    i really love this poem. Funny though just a few nights ago i saw a shooting star and i was so shocked that i blinked and it was gone and with it the chance to make a wish.
