I can pretend to be a dog

Bark bark

I can make myself a dog

Bark bark 

Wag wag


But it hurts to not be a bird

And i feel scared because i'm not a dog 

Bark bark 

Wag wag


I'm only an ugly bird

Flap flap


And everybody wants a dog 

Bark bark 

Wag wag


And most people hate birds

Flap flap 


But i can never be a dog

Bark bark 

Wag wag


So i'm stuck with being a bird

this is wonderful because while reading it, it made me think that it is very important to be you in a way that you might try to pretend to be like others but for us to truly live in this world, we must only be our true selves.
