The wishing tree

The wishing trees

I came from the ocean a million
Miles away
Dragging myself from the undertow
To get away
There’s a cave where dragons hide
Away from prying eyes
The girl with auburn hair
Who’s set free in sunlight

I give my thanks right now
For all you have given me
All the lessons that I learned
Sitting underneath the wishing trees

We read books absorbing all we see
Open minds to all these
Possibilities.
Folklore tales, science and maths
Education sets you free
Inspire these little minds
To all the universe can be

A kaleidoscope of hope now
Did you learn from the mistakes we made
And I hope you don’t trip and fall like me
