If I Were

If I were a horse,
I would learn to carry my heavy load

If I were a bird,
I would learn how to sing

If I were a cat,
I would learn independence

If I were a monkey,
I would learn to have fun

If I were a turtle,
I would learn that home is the safest place to be

If I were a dog,
I would learn the importance of companionship

If I were a spider,
I would learn great, but simple architecture

If I were a lion,
I would learn the value of teamwork

If I were an ant,
I would learn the value of teamwork

Those these animals were naturally given these qualities and abilities
I
And all of mankind
are naturally given the quality and ability of LOVE
And this is the greatest quality and ability of all
