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.
