When wishes are granted
Past and present weigh in on the future
Strings linger and drag
The resistance of those left behind

When wishes are granted
Demons become angels
And angels become envious
The rejection of belief in belief

When wishes are granted
One does not question their origins
To be thankful for mercies
And the elevation of attention

When wishes are granted
Purpose becomes focused and aligned
Clarity of thought from the wilderness
A self imposition and therefore solution

When wishes are granted
Dreams of heaven and earth wither
The pale light of day burns in irrelevance
And ashes and dust mark the passage of time.
