Starry Wish by Gary R. Hess

This poem is about wishing for a great future for my unborn children. When this poem was written, I simply couldn't look at the world and see hope, so I looked into the stars and made this wish.

"Starry Wish"

Stars and moon from heaven
Clouds and sunset above
Comets flying through the air
Look down on me and give hope

Beautiful space, wonderful space
You're here forever for me to see
Here for my daughter to love
Here for more to ponder and voyage

I wish upon you this night
Not to give me something
But give the world new life and dreams
For the earth is old and ragged

This land is torn by hatred and corruption
The sea is flowed with acid and pollution
Save the world before it dies
Save the world before its day
