Wish Away


I wish I could write something special
Something inspired, something rousing
I wish I could write a stairway to heaven
I wish I could write an escape from hell
I sometimes think I’m the person that knows
I sometimes think I’m the one without woes
I wish I was so special that I didn’t have to wish

I wish I could dig myself up out of this hole
Too long have I sat in this sprawl,
Too long have I pondered the whereabouts of my muse
Did I ever have one? Where is it now if I did?
Am I destined to be a bore? I get jaded in my own company
I wish I could write like a true poet
I wish I could feel their sense of anguish, their sense of joy
But I’m stuck with being inapt for even Freud
