My Only Wish

I might wish for quite a few things
But if they never happen, I’d be disappointed.
I’ve found a way to avoid that disappointment:
Don’t expect a great deal.
Expecting too much raises one up a bit too high,
and, when dropped, is injured.
And who wants to be hurt?

My only wish is to keep that philosophy of “come what may,” and may it serve me well in the future, as it has in the past.
