My response to A Poem A Day prompt on WDC

If Only

If only money grew on trees 
I found in my backyard.
If only success came to me,
but not by working hard.
If only people all agreed
with what I had to say,
then I’d be rich and famous,
and I’d always get my way!

But all I grow in my backyard
are trees that produce leaves.
I’ve reached my goals in life so far
by rolling up my sleeves,
And since I’m no authority,
nor academic whiz,
I’ll forget about “if only” 
and get busy with what is!
