My biggest wish

#ChallengeRichard: “If you could have one wish for the world come true, what would it be? Write it as a poem or letter.”


My biggest wish


If I could only have one wish,

It wouldn’t be for wealth or my favourite dish.

I’d wish a wish for everyone,

That the day we’ve been waiting for would come.


A day where world leaders could proudly say,

No one is persecuted against in any way.

Where rights are equal in every land,

Where people of all nations stand hand-in-hand.

A world where poverty no longer persists,

And the glass ceiling no longer exists. 

A world where nobody feels the need to know their place,

Or feels ashamed or afraid to show their true face.


I wish a wish for equality,

That would mean everything for me.

A world without conflict, just harmony,

That’s what my biggest wish would be.

I certainly wouldn’t call myself a poet, but I have tried my hand at a few verses over the years.

Have a read of this love poem I wrote when I was 15 years old, and this poem for all entrepreneurs I wrote last year in response to another #ChallengeRichard.

I feel the title of poet is better credited to my son Sam, who wrote these lovely verses about his daughter Eva-Deia, while in Scotland recently.

If you could have one wish for the world come true, what would it be? More importantly, what are you doing to make it a reality?
