‘When you wish upon a star
you bet on something that’s too far
away to pay attention to
something minuscule as you.’
‘Don’t underrate the speed of light.
We’re here for you day and night.
Pay no heed to cynics who
try to tarnish hope for you.’
‘Ooh, silver linings! What comes next,
peaks with clouds up to their necks
who divert from mountainous tasks
to help poor you because you ask?’
‘To believe in only what you see
blinds you to reality.
Once you’re wise you will perceive
that seeing starts when you believe.’
