Three wishes, or, be careful what you wish



I wished for peace,
then certainty and wealth
which gave me all,

I wanted, thought I needed
and when it came I realised 
money had a price -
payment made decisively
with your loss of life. 


We are asking you to write 33 words exactly about three wishes that come at a high price to the wisher.
