well i'll be damned... literally

file this one under: Be Careful What You Wish For, You Just Might Get It

as well as: Everything GOOD has a BAD side to it, and Vice-Versa

seems the gods have decided
to grant me my wish
and perhaps
i should've taken more care
for a wish fulfilled
with it's freedoms instilled
has consequences.

i've longed for a lifetime
for what i now have
yet it's worthless
if not put to use
i fear it will vanish
if it is revealed
so forgive me for being

i now have a power
and like dorothy's shoes
i may well have had it
all along
how long will it last
'til it too has passed?
who knows? but i suspect
not long
