We’re Inherently Good… But Inherently flawed.

“I wish I had never quit piano lessons.  I wish I never put that cigarette into my mouth.  I wish I had the patience to practice guitar.  I wish I had a decent guitar.  I wish I had better luck in relationships.  I wish I wasn’t so selfish.  I wish I didn’t have to worry about money.  I wish my body could keep up with my mind.  I wish I wasn’t getting older.  I wish I were more courageous.  I wish I respected the fact that I have it pretty good.  I wish I didn’t look so much like my dad.  I wish I would stand up for myself more.  I wish I had a job that I loved.  I wish I was brave enough to look for another one.  I wish I knew what she was thinking.  I wish I didn’t run from every good relationship I’ve ever been in.  I wish I understood my heart.  I wish that I was given the gift of faith.  I wish I wasn’t so cynical.  I wish I wasn’t so filled with anger.  I wish I wouldn’t let that anger out.  I wish I could fly.  I wish I could stop time.  I wish I was right.  I wish I knew what I was doing.  I wish I didn’t let on that I totally know what I’m doing.  I wish that one day I’m called out.  I wish I never failed.  I wish I had a wife.  I wish I was never cheated on.  I wish I had kids who needed me.  I wish anyone needed me.  I wish I could express myself in ANY way.  I wish I had the guts to tell that son of a bitch off.  I wish I wasn’t so frugal.  I wish I went on more trips.  I wish I didn’t lie to people that I love.  I wish I didn’t have to lie.  I wish the truth were easy.  I wish there was someone just like me.  I wish I never saw that dead body.  I wish I never saw that person when they were alive.  I wish I didn’t hear their cries for help after the fact.  I wish I went to a different school.  I wish I stuck with acting.  I wish I went on just one audition.  I wish I stuck with singing.  I wish I didn’t feel so sorry for myself.  I wish I had just one good run.  I wish I didn’t have so many good cries.  I wish I was an explorer.  I wish I owned a kite and hammock shop.  I wish life were no harder than it has to be.  I wish my family understood me.  I wish I was comfortable confiding in just one of them.  I wish I was comfortable confiding in anyone.  I wish I acted on my thoughts.  I wish I invented the things I dream up.  I wish I wasn’t beaten to the punch.  I wish I could throw a punch.  I wish I had been in a fight.  I wish I could win a fight.  I wish I were fearless.  I wish I had more confidence.  I wish people noticed me.  I wish I had the balls to go up and talk to her.  I wish I were so cool that she’d want to come up and talk to me.  I wish I had style.  I wish I could pull off wearing a bowler hat.  I wish I knew another language.  I wish I knew every language.  I wish my parents gave me different parts of themselves.  I wish I could pick and choose.  I wish I understood art.  I wish I understood music.  I wish I had more time.  I wish I didn’t waste the time I’ve already been given.  I wish I could seize the day.  I wish I were more cavalier.  I wish I had perfect teeth.  I wish I had green eyes.  I wish I were 4 inches taller.  I wish I had more muscle.  I wish I had the drive to work out.  I wish I liked more things.  I wish I wasn’t so damn good at video games.  I wish more people would confide in me.  I wish the people who did confide in me weren’t so fucked up.  I wish my friends needed me more.  I wish I didn’t need them so much.  I wish everyone had the same morals I do.  I wish I had better morals.  I wish people didn’t trust me so much.  I wish I had more trust in people.  I wish I trusted anyone but myself.  I wish I could tell my mother everything.  I wish I could tell my father everything.  I wish I were more giving.  I wish someone needed me.  I wish the world knew my name.  I wish I had a legacy to leave.  I wish I could ride a motorcycle.  I wish I found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  I wish I found that Easter egg.  I wish that there was no cancer.  I wish I didn’t have to outlive the ones I love.  I wish they never have to grieve for me.  I wish a giant meteor falls from the sky and takes out everyone on this rock at the same time so no one has to deal with the loss of a loved one.  I wish Space Food Stick tasted as good as I remember them tasting.  I wish there were more people like my grandmother walking around this world.  I wish we made contact with aliens in my lifetime.  I wish I had something to believe in.  I wish I could teach people the good things I know.  I wish I could reverse the bad things I know.  I wish I was a masked vigilante.  I wish I had the balls to destroy evil.  I wish I had the knowledge and power to erase bad from this world.  I wish I knew the difference between the good and bad.  I wish I knew where we came from.  I wish I knew where I was going.  I wish the dinosaurs weren’t extinct.  I wish people wouldn’t hide behind religion.  I wish parent would let their children make up their own minds.  I wish I had perspective.  I wish that someone would look at me like my dog used to.  I wish I knew unconditional love.  I wish there were no heartbreak.  I wish I could put someone above myself.  I wish I were a gentleman.  I wish I could talk to animals.  I wish I had a normal brain.  I wish I was smarter.  I wish I were better at math.  I wish I was more serious.  I wish everything was easy.  I wish I had a million dollars.  I wish we lived for the common good.  I wish charity meant more to more people.  I wish I didn’t get jealous.  I wish more people were jealous of me.  I wish I had a time machine.  I wish I could go back and smack people for doing things that would eventually harm my life.  I wish I had a house.  I wish I had a backyard. I wish…”

“Woah, woah woah…. let me stop you there. When you kicked over this lamp and I suddenly appeared and asked you what you wished for I wasn’t being rhetorical… I wasn’t asking for your fucking life story.  You people are so pathetic.  I’m fully prepared to give you one…”

“The million dollars…”
