Wishing So Hard
By: Kristyn D’Angiolillo
 
The little girl climbs in the big old tree,
Wishing so hard that she could be free.
 
She climbs higher and higher in her little red dress,
Wishing so hard to be relieved from this stress.
 
She tries not to think of all the bad things,
Wishing so hard as she climbs and she sings.
 
The tears start to pour as the rain comes down,
Wishing so hard she could do something but frown.
 
The heavy drops remind her of the bad times,
Wishing so hard against these sad crimes.
 
She runs inside where her sick mother waits,
Wishing so hard to the one who determines our fates.
 
“Please God,” she says “let her be well,”
Wishing so hard she can’t even tell.
 
She’s her mommy’s hand so tight,
Wishing so hard for her not to lose sight.
 
Mommy’s grip becomes weaker and weaker,
Wishing so hard, this couldn’t be bleaker.
 
Then it’s all over, she’s given in,
Wishing so hard that she’s going to heaven.
