Grant Me My Starving Wish

Please grant me a wish or two 

My first wish is that I want to try something new 

Something that is nutritional

Something that is drinkable     

I was on this island for days there was no bodies of liquid that taste sweet 

So my second wish is to have something to eat, clothes on my body, and shoes on my feet 

It would be sweet 

As these long days go by I think I am starting to die

It’s something I want to deny

If my wishes come true it would be bittersweet as I just want something to eat!
