Radio Poets 2016: Sarah Wong
I Wish Upon the Shadowy Darkness
Sarah Wong, Lakeshore Elementary School
I wish I were an angel, so I could fly through the grassy plains.
I wish the grassy plains were a meadow with flowers like fierce tigers.
I wish the flowers were made from rainbows, so I could see them.
But I can’t, because I am not here.
I am no where. I wish I was not lost. I wish I was not confused.
I wish the child inside me could write a poem.
I wish she could hold a pencil.
I wish she could read, but she can’t, because she is not here.
She is no where. I wish I wasn’t lost in the shadowy darkness.
But one light can be the end of the blooming flowers.
