I Wish by Xavier Jennings (Highly Commended)

I wish I was the sun so I could be bright and shiny all day
I wish I was a dog so I did was play.
I wish I could I grow big and tall but still be small and cute.
I wish when I was bigger I could have a cool green ute
I wish I could be like a bird so I could soar and fly
I wish I could write lots and lots without having to try
I wish things could stay the same and we did not move our home
I wish I never had to be by myself alone.
I wish I was amazing so I could do a flip
I wish I had a pool so I could hop in for a dip
I wish I had lots of things as you can kind of see
Really but, I’m happy and I’m super glad I’m me!
