I watched the poor struggling bird trying to fly against the wind. My only thought was ' stupid bird, fly in the other direction.' But that's when it occurred to me that maybe the bird needed to go somewhere like us. However, whereever we go is probably just some stupid place compared to where the animals go. At least with animals, where they go is important, like they go and get food for themselves or their young, or they're migrating. Sure, we humans go to important places too, like to get food or got to work to make money to get food. But the thing is that they're neccessities. Going for a vacation or wasting money on stuff isn't needed.

I wish I was an animal, preferrably a bird. If i were a bird I woulldn't earn money. I wouldn't spend it recklessly or at all. I would be getting my own food, I'd be building a home, not furnishing a pre- built one. If I were a bird I could fly. I would fly south for survival, not for a vacation. If I were a bird I would struggle wiht flying just like I had told you about earlier. I'm stuborn as a perso, so I would most likely continue to try to fly against the wind, rather than fly with it.

Birds are beautiful, some look strange, but they're all still beautiful because they are unique and different from every other bird. I guess we can say that I want to be a bird because they don't have to pay of anything, they don't have to make money, they know the meaning of survival, and they don't pollute the earth with their ways of transportation. Sure, a bird could die easily, but it would be a better life than this. Than this horirble polluted life. I could fly, I could see the world. I would be different.

If only I were a bird.
