My Birthday Wishes

Written by: Alon Calinao Dy

I can't believe time goes by so fast.
	I'm 28 years old in November and 
finally
	I have wishes to God that I'd like to 
pray.

	I thank God for the gift of life.
	My mind,  ears, and eyes are open 
wide
	Because of His unwavering support 
and guide.
	I know I can never repay His greatest 
love.

	I wish to live in a peaceful world
	Where I have nothing to fear
	I wish to  see my children playing,
	Smiling, kissing, and hugging each 
other.

	I'm quite nervous about the world 
today.
	People have no money and getting 
hungry.
	The poor people are becoming poorer
	While the rich are becoming richer.

	I wish to have justice for all people.
	No more criminals and victims of 
crime
	For the world to live in harmony and 
peace.

	In silent prayers,
	I thank God for the answers
	To my birthday wishes.
