I wish I was something else,
To take away the agony...
That way If I died,
It wouldn't be a tragedy.
If I were an animal,
I would be an eagle...
A symbol of great power,
And freedom for our people.
Why an eagle you ask?
That is a good question...
I want to be just like one,
Because they can't feel depression.
They don't care about anything,
They don't have to feel shame...
So what did they ever do,
To deserve a life of pain?
They are hard to come by,
People look at them like strangers...
I'm like an eagle in the fact,
That guys like me are endangered.
We're not out to hurt people,
We're not out to seek blood...
We are kind and caring,
We're mainly misunderstood.
I'm just like an eagle,
We are both looked at wrong...
Most people think we're pests,
And most of them just want us gone.
So if I could be an animal,
I'd choose an eagle anyday...
That way when something goes wrong,
I can spread my wings and fly away.
