If I Had One Wish

I’d be rid of everything in life that’s weighing me down right now.  My house, the stuff in it, all the people in my life, except my children.  There’d be nothing but a clean slate.  And I wouldn’t be here anymore.

Life in gilded cages, prompts you to escape.  What am I escaping?  Everything.  When will I leave? Tomorrow.  Will I return?  Why would I? I watch the birds smash into the glass and vow to keep the windows open in future.  Some birds never learn.  I like to think I’m smarter than my captors.
