I Wish I Was A Bird - Poem by Amy Louise Kerswell

I wish I was a bird.
Free to fly free to roam.
Without a care in the world.
Not worring where I'm going.
Happy just flying.
Higher and higher soaring the skies.

I wish I were a bird.
The open space.
Just to fly and be me.
To be happy soaring the skies.

Only I am no bird.
Reality cuts like a knife.
Everything hurts.
I am so sad.

    I'm glad I'm not a bird.
    I can eat steak, cookies and cake,
    while they dine on things absurd.
