BETTER DAYS

If you asked me, “what do I want this year?”

I would state, “I wish for better days.”

I wish the invisible enemy (Covid-19) could be eradicated from

our midst so it will cease the carnage of lives.

I wish all the chronic ailments that ravage

the bodies of the “haves-nots and haves” could be

of the past.

I wish there was health-care for all so that many

wouldn’t have to surrender their homes and

other possessions in order to fund a procedure to

save their lives.

I wish those in authority would place themselves in

others’ shoes and make sensible and ethical decisions

to protect an entire population despite their religious believes,

race and sexual orientation.

I wish that workers could be duly compensated with more than a

living wage so as to comfortably take care of their families’ needs

and have enough to reserve for a “nest egg”.

I wish employers would view the workers as their biggest

assets and don’t see them as liabilities.

I wish that the Monopoly marketplace could cease sinking the

neighborhood stores, restaurants knowing that there’s a

share for everyone.

I wish kids could get a chance to spend more time on the outskirts

with their peers instead of being entertained by video games.

I wish poverty and homelessness could be a thing of the past.

I wish mental illness could be viewed and take as serious a

physical ailment.

I know these are all piped dreams, but what can one do?

We all can wish for Better Days.
