I Want to be (Anything But Me)

July 19, 2010
I want to be a bird
So I can fly away
From the struggles I face
Day by day

I want to be a monkey
Swinging from a tree
How nice it would be
To be wild and free

I want to be a tiger
With a vicious roar
So my enemies will run and hide
I'll scare them to the core

I want to be a weeping willow
So I can weep freely when I please
"Weeping" is in my name
So nobody would tease

I wish I was a lot of things
As you can plainly see
Sometimes it gets a little tiring
Just simply being me
