IF WISHES WERE HORSES

IF WISHES WERE HORSES

A long time ago

She used to be shy

Three times in a row

She refused to ‘fly’

Not b’cos she was too young

Not b’cos of fear of getting it wrong

Not b’cos she could get broken

Not b’cos she missed the token

With her shoulders high

Though not with pride

She could say, “I’m not tied”

And not be criticized

But a little longer

She began to wonder

Just how it’ll be

Not being free

So without hesitation

She let her guards down

With little or no invitation

They got under her gown

Now she knows how it feels

Being on either sides

And like the waves of the sea

Her life is in tides

If Wishes were horses

If she had made better choices

If she could go over it again

If she could be that girl again

But wishes aren’t horses

So beggars cannot ride

She had a chance to make her choices

She just didn’t make them right.
