If I’m given another life,

I’ll never choose to be human

Falling in and out of love is tempting

But there is too much sadness and cruelty


If I’m given another life

I will never choose to be fish

For there are so many predators in the sea

And few safety caves


I will never choose to be an animal in the wild

I watch the chase and I panic

Eat or be eaten is not my style

And can never be


Neither will I choose to be a domestic animal

It is too bad to be a non talking slave

Who can be brutalised or neglected any time

And may live outside human walls


I may want to be a tree

Not just any tree, but a celebrated tree

So I will never be butchered

And my pictures will spread


I would want to be the sun

Shinning warmly and gently bright

Using heat to give fright

Like a mother who knows how to mother

Having time to sleep and wake

And knowing all that happens under the sun
