Wishes For The World--Not Me

There are times I'd
like to find
A genie with a lamp
inside
Three wishes would
just be grand
Giving me a helping
hand
To fix problems that
I see
On this earth that
shouldn't be
Happening cause its
just wrong
And running on way
too long
I would love to do
this first
Put abusers on this
earth
That take away the
innocence
Of animals and small
children
Into a whole so dark
and deep
Covered so no air
can seep
Into their dungeon
of doom
Feeling the pain and
gloom
They've caused other
without seeing
They will be the
ones soon grieving
My second wish could
be toward
Moving this great
motion froward
Making same sex
marriage legal
So their free just
like an eagle
Flying high with
open wings
Someday this new law
will bring
Hearts together
joined as one
A new life will have
begun
Acceptance will
start to transform
Haters seeing the
lovelorn
Can be any
combination
Of sexual
orientation
Third and last would
certainly
Be the best wish I
can see
No more bad sickness
or hunger
We need poverty to
go under
So everybody has
enough
Medicine food and
other stuff
Keeping them healthy
and strong
They can live a life
that's long
And not die before
their time
We all need to try
and find
A way to make sure
this whole planet
Has enough supplies
to grant it
These are things I
really wish
Would come true--not
be dismissed
A world of coming
all together
Granting these
wishes forever

    It would take a lot more than just three wishes to solve all the current problems in the world. Nice write.

    I hope your wishes come true Robin. I have discovered that the only thing each of us can do is to seek inner transformation, and seek to be a lantern in the night. Love your words....Peter

    I really Love how Robin's pieces are bold and thought-provoking. It's like an endless assault of sharp facts that causes the readers to feel every word and start caring.

    I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I have daydreamed about a Genie in a lamp granting me 3 wishes and for what I would wish. Loved this piece, sweet pea! :)
