I wish

I used to wish the world was color blind
it would solve so many problems
but then we'd miss the shy blue sky and the way the sun melts away each night
purples and pinks seeping out into the sky

I used to wish the world was deaf
it would stop me from hearing such words
but I'd miss the way music grabs my soul and carries it with each note
makes harmony in each line

I used to wish the world couldn't feel
it would stop a lot of pain
but how can one not feel the whispering breeze, the chilling rain, the crunchiness of a grass
the thorn on the rose you gave me

So now I wish the world would love
it would make up for all the filth
it would break down walls, build bridges, stop wars
but most of all
it will make someone smile
