What if this were a poem?

What if I were a bird?
I’d wander free from the earth’s pull.
Even rest on the back of a bull.

What if I were a bull?
I’d graze all day on the fresh grass,
But give the warrior ants a way to pass.

What if I were an ant?
I’d live in peaceful colonies of my kin,
Feeding on the marvellous deer’s dead skin.

What if I were a deer?
Beautiful- is what I would be called.
I’d be so quick that a lion chasing me would turn bald.

What if I were a lion?
The king of the jungle and ruler of all.
I’d be so powerful that the elephant’s might would fall.

What if I were an elephant?
The biggest and toughest is what I’d be,
A man would pay to even get a glimpse of me.

But oh, I’m only a poet.
One who searches for a muse even when quiet.
My imagination is what makes me high.
Wings aren’t something I need to fly.

Hold my hand and step on board,
We’ll be anything our mind wants to mould.

  1. Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break.
    I enjoy the information you provide here and can’t
    wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile ..
    I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, awesome blog!

    1. Greetings from India! I’m happy you enjoyed reading my blog.
      Thanks a lot, that’s really great to hear!
      Sadly for some reasons your comment went to spam and I just checked it. Hope this finds you in good spirits. 🙂

  2. I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours as of late, but I by no means
    discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It’s pretty price sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made
    just right content material as you did, the internet
    will be a lot more helpful than ever before.
