I wish there were a world

where I wasn’t a prisoner of time



I wish I could hook the ocean

whose waves bid to force me drown




I wish I could cage the moments

and held them hostage of mine




I wish I could silence the sounds

that birth and thrust all wounds



I wish I could bottle up the air

that strew my woes around




I wish I could douse the fire

that burnt my strength down




I wish I could eclipse the sun

and feel the power rebound




I wish I could freeze the time

so happiness wouldn’t be a crime!
