Bird

If I were a bird,
how joyous would life be?
I could live without stress and strife,
I could finally be free.

If I were a bird,
never would I have to talk.
Not a word could my bulky beak blather,
all I could do is sing and squawk.

If I were a bird,
oh, the places I could go.
I could soar above the clouds,
in the orange, sunset glow.

If I were a bird,
I could escape all my pain.
I could spread my wings and fly away,
never to be seen again.

If I were a bird,
how joyous would life be?
But sadly, I am not a bird,
and I must continue being me.

  • Comment from author about the poem: I wrote something different from my usual emotional pieces. Today I was inspired by the birds I saw on my walk to school. I watched them in awe, as their black silhouettes took flight in the early morning light. Is there any way I could improve it?

              What a beautiful piece! I love the way it transports us to a place of beauty, safety and freedom as we journey, like a bird, through your inspiring words and into a more peaceful fantasy world. Can't wait to read more! xx

                Thank you for your sweet comment!! 😀
                I'll try my best to write more poems of this sort! (Unfortunately I have tests at school, so it might be a little while, but I've got something on my mind anyway!)
