The Bounty of a Wish

Its a lonely world that was growing quite full.
Even with all these ponies it was terribly dull.

But this is not a problem for a certain mare,
For she lights up during the darkest times like a flare.

But even our heroine has her falls,
Although she is never alone and all she has to do is call.

With her friends she will never fail.
She is invincible with their care.

But even friendship cant stop death.
A poor orange mare was put to eternal rest.

A storm unlike any other was seen at the farm.
Throwing apples all across the lawn.

While they hurt and bruised it was nothing more.
Until a barrel hit the door.

With it wide open and the wind blowing.
The storm took up the house and started growing.

Once the storm settled down,
Various ponies came from the town.

The six friends were now five.
Forever now they would brood for the rest of their lives.

Each choosing their own, what ifs and what now,
especially a certain blue pegasus thinking about it just right now.

Their days went on but Death was not done.
Soon another friend was was forever gone.

The bright pink one full of laughter and smiles,
was now underwater for hundreds of miles.

On a quest to find the perfect guest.
Her grand party only missing a single pony for the best.

Who knew that the boat would tip?
Especially one that could not flip?

The boat was rocked back and forth.
Tossed in the waves while heading north.

During its highest peak in the ocean,
It caused quiet a commotion.

That was the last time the boat was ever seen,
Gone forever in the ocean green.

Yet again the used to be six now became four.
And soon they decided on doing a tour.

A tour to see the world despite the cost,
in hopes to grant peace from their loss.

But this was not the end,
for death came and took another friend.

She wore to most fabulous dress of all,
But because of it she took a great fall.

On the wall she stood steadfast.
Who knew it would be her last?

From up high she saw many views.
The morning sky tinted with different hues.

It was then she did not notice.
The young fellow with the mark of a lotus.

Entranced he was by her dress,
He soon put her into distress.

Accidentally knocking her off the wall he stopped and yelled.
But nothing could save her from that fall, and he surly knew he was heading to Hell.

Soon the fashion mare joined the others in the afterlife tree,
now the group was reduced to three.

From six to three nopony could handle it,
Soon the remaining friends started to have fits.

But no matter the pain they pushed on through.
The three remaining friends stayed true.

Together they helped each other stand back up.
For soon came the Winter wrap up.

The farms were quiet this year,
and the birds nest look quite dreary.

The frozen lakes were left untouched.
Nopony was in a high mood during brunch.

With winter done and the wounds still sore.
It only made sense that Death came around once more.

A young dragon saw it with his own eyes,
The death caused by a block of ice.

Who knew a simple fall would cost so much.
Even if it was just a small touch.

The impact of a mare's head hitting the floor.
One would think it would only leave a sore.

But it soon turned out to be,
Something nopony could have foreseen.

A tumor inside her burst from her tumble,
leaving her head in a jumble.

Unable to walk or speak, only to receive and never give.
The poor purple mare soon lost the will to live.

All that was left were two flying creatures.
Each losing their special features.

The once shy and kind mare now dominates the bar,
Drinking heavy cider trying to bring her pain to par.

While the once loyal mare soon left her behind,
hoping her wounds would heal with time.

Months have passed with the colorful mare,
She soon meet her soon to be husband at a county fair.

Then came the day, in a field of mares and colts.
The wonderful day of the tryouts for the Wonderbolts.

With her husband in tow and her head held high,
She finally got her wish she held for a long time.

The wish where she put everything on the line,
just to be with the Wonderbolts this time.

More months have passed since her first performance.
Her fame carried far and wide with her radiance.

But it was all for naught.
For it was time she was taught.

Death came to her but not as a guide to the afterlife, nay
Only to tell her about her last friend, about what happened when she left that day.

Heartbroken the yellow pegasus was,
Even her bunny could not find the cause.

Soon she was a raging drinker.
Soon she was not a very good thinker.

In the time of need she thought of a plan to end her grief,
A plan to end all of her pain with a simple knife.

Days passed until somepony took her route,
But by then her spark of life was already snuffed out.

Now the group is longer whole.
For now it is a single soul.

'Why Death?' The cyan mare cried out.
'Why do you force me to cry and shout?!'.

'Do you not remember about your wish?'
'The one about you offering everything for the Wonderbolts? Even as something as small as fish?'

'You don't mean what i think your meaning!' The mare said with a scoff.
'Right? You don't really thi-' But she was cut off.

'Such naive young foal, have you forgotten the deal?'
'The one about no matter what happens as long as you get your wish. no matter which pony kneels?'

She was hit with an invisible blow.
One that left her hollow.

All these years she cursed bad luck.
Only to find out...'BUCK!'

'This is not fair!' She wailed.
'Its completely fair, and you should know that it was you, that failed.'

But she could not bare the news.
She soon took off leaving her crew.

Hours upon hours she flew.
In hopes of finding all the clues.

But no matter what she did she knew.
Her friends took the price her going askew.

Her loyalty was shattered on the spot.
She soon let herself fall from the sky, her cheeks getting hot.

'Poor mare.' Death mocked towards her.
'Did you not know? You should always think about what you wish for.'
