A Magic Wand

You say you found a magic wand

That grants you all you please

Your life will be so happy now

If given all with ease

I wonder if you’ve given thought

To what that really means

The things that you’ll be missing now

Were overlooked it seems

 

How will you know the joy of life

With nothing to compare

Or ever seek to rise above

A circumstance or care

To never know the pain of loss

Or need to face your fears

Or have a single scar to show

For any of your years

 

So many things you wouldn’t know

That makes us who we are

Your character and self esteem

Aren’t found upon a star

They’re only found in lessons learned

From choices made in life

Mistakes and Triumphs, loss and gain

Loves happiness and strife

 

There is no glory for someone

Who’s never overcome

The challenges we must go through

To know the pride we’ve won

In looking back you’ll understand

What every test has meant

And how they have prepared you

To face the next one sent


Just think about these words above

And you will see I’m right

As lesser men have come to know

When last they see the light

There’s many joys in struggles past

That retrospect provides

Just send the wand back while you can

Let conscience be your guide

reminds me of the Adam Sandler movie "Click"... and you have to know pain in order to appreciate pleasure! Good poem, write on!

A very philosophical and intriguing view on life and it's fickle ups and downs. The wand can interfere with maturation and would eventually lead to self-loathing. Great advice , great write! ginga
