Sometimes people wish for things that don't actually exist.
Or, they think they're chasing after something hopeless, but that something does have some merit.
Some people are set for great things, but just don't know it yet.
Maybe one day... something will happen.
It may be something small, like living past seventeen, or something big, like graduation or marriage.
Whatever that something might be, it's best to go for it.
If it doesn't exist, you've got nothing to lose; it wasn't like you didn't learn something anyway.
If it works out, then great. You've got yourself a winner.
It's important to remember that it always comes down to one or two things: time and luck.
You might be lucky, you might not be lucky.
Time might work for you, it might not.
It's not really up to you whether it works out or not; the only thing that's up to you is whether or not you choose to try.
Be patient and wait. If you squint hard enough, you might see something in that musky crystal ball.
