Concerning Wishes

Concerning Wishes

You think they come easy
As though I keep them buried
Between bosoms and straps
And fluffy blue outfits made from fireflies
Oh dear child
Your naivety will catch up to your
You think you’re the only one
To have them
Looking to me as if
You expect me to be a miracle worker
I am a busy woman
Do not waste my time making decisions on
Is not always a good thing
Power beauty money they all have a price
Temptation is not spoken of
Be careful you don’t fall trap
To a young girl’s fairytale of
That often fall victim
To adulthood expectations

-Aleisha Mattice
