Why...

Why can't I be a tree,

Standing up all day and night,

Nothing else to do but grow.

No jobs needed.

Only water.

No stress. No pain.

No things, making life feel bad.

 

Why can't I be a bird. 

The magpie that struts,

Between the lumbering trees.

No worries. No troubles.

Easy enough for him.

Why can't I be that tree, or bird.

Hassle free, from humanity.

 

Oh why not me?
