A place where wishes were free


Lost in a faraway land
Where wishes were eternally free
She had no idea where to go
Or what she should hope to see

So she crossed the widest ocean
And climbed the highest mountain
Yet even with an abundance of wishes
She found nothing she could ever count on

For no matter how often
She tried to make a mindful wish
She still couldn’t seem to go
To the places which didn’t exist

And so the gobs of wishes
Never did her very much good
And one day she finally realized
That they never actually could
