Wishing the future
Like a paradise we lost
Let life lead us there
Many people will not agree with this. Life is struggle, life is disappointment, we don’t always get what we want. We have to be realistic.
But maybe instead we have to dream more. Maybe we have to have more faith that anything is possible. Maybe we have to imagine we are already there.
What or who has given us life can also give us what we wish for, and if life doesn’t lead us there, what will? We have to do what we can. We have to do our part. We have to believe that wishes can come true. Like horses…they can take you there.*
* “If wishes were horses, beggars would ride” is an English language proverb and nursery rhyme, originating in the 16th century, which suggests if wishing could make things happen, then even the most destitute people would have everything they wanted. (From Wikipedia)
