If I was a seagull I will stretch my wings and fly

 Far into the sea to enjoin the silence of the ocean

 If I was a crane I will launch into the blue sky

Flap my wings and fly to places far away

 If I was a butterfly I will flutter around the bushes

Sing a song to the flowers as I fly

If I was a hawk I will soar over the mountains

Enjoy the greenery of the earth and the life moving by

If I was a vulture I’ll fly above the sand dunes

And look for the oasis of life

If I was a whale, I’ll plunge into ocean

To see the beauty of life

But I am a human with no wings or fins to fly and dive

Yet my deeds are crooked enough

To mar the beauty and the life
