If I were a bird


If I could be any animal I’d be a bird.

Coming and going as I please,

Taking advantage of the times and seasons,

Settling only in favorable places and fleeing from all appearance of discomfort,

Not giving to grounded limitations.


If I were a bird I’d be a lovebird.

A social and affectionate specie of parrot,

Striking, beautiful and impressive as I will be,

With my many colors to flaunt,

And intelligence to match my beauty,

I’d be a beatific heart throb.


If I were an animal I’d be blameless,

Obliged only to the things I have to and oblivious about the things that I can’t help.

If I were a bird I’d have no worries,

With freedom only as my cage, I’d have the ends of the earth as my playground.

Being a lovebird only best incarnates what I could have been but human.
