So many wishes
it's impossible to choose
one, or even three.
Wishes for people I love
or all living creatures?

My priorities
are selfish but I don't want
live life like that,
absorbed by my own worries
of what the future may bring.

I must take a breath
and another after that.
I can't let fear win.
Wishes don't cost any thing;
I will wish they all come true.
