What's In A Bird? - Poem by shadow ...art

whay's in a bird,
that everybody wants to be
in their second life?

what's in a horse,
that everybody wants to ride
when the bird fails to fly?

what's in a fish,
that everybody wants to have
when the horse gets tired of running?

and, what's in the world,
that everybody wants to...
fly away,
run farther,
and
swim under
just to leave everything behind?
