"People may walk out the door, but they leave it open for someone else to walk in" <3


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

Time is an important thing but it is also the cause of a lot of pain;Some wish for it to go faster while others wish for it to go faster.Then there are those that wish it could just end. So enjoy the time in life you are given and don't worry so much.
