Ask the Wishing Well a questing and see what answer you get in return.

The Wishing Well

Look down toward the water

Look to the depths of it's soul

See throught the murky waters

And speak your wish.

Do you see a loved one?

Do you see fame?

Do you see happiness?

Or is what you see pain?

The Wishing Well isn't a well of granted wishes

It tells straight and ture

It knows what lurks in your soul

And only speaks the truth.

So if you see darkness, that is your pain

If you see light, that is your happiness

If you see a dove, that is your fame.

And if you see a blooming flower, that is your loved one.

But I speak the truth when I say

I have only seen one of the four

I have seen darkness

And that darkness won't go

The Wishing Well speaks the truth

So please take a look

Maybe you can find something different

Something worth wishing for.
