If I Were a Bird
Birds are the most free-spirited and independent creatures in the universe. Not only do they fly but they also have the most beautiful voices and their pride never allows them to keep it to themselves. Every morning, we wake up to the sweet melodies of birds chirping with joy in their little hearts regardless of how sad or bad their day was. Birds tend to live each day differently and whether it rains or not they will always help to wake us up in the morning with their sweet tunes. I have always admired birds and the truth is in another world, I would like to be a bird. The life birds is almost oblivious of what is happening in the world. Whether there is an economic meltdown, or we have an election or we have any major event, birds are simply never affected. I always more than enough reasons to give when am asked why I would like to be a bird. However, in this article, I would like to focus on what I would do if I was one.
First of all, if I was a bird, I would fly to all the places I have ever wanted to visit but never had the chance. One of the places I would like to visit would be the Serengeti in Tanzania and the Mara in Kenya. I believe that the wildebeest migration is the most beautiful thing in the world. The many clips I have watched on YouTube have always made me jealous of the people who have had the opportunity to visit the place and witness the magnificent migration. As a bird, however, I would get the opportunity to witness the whole migration from above. Everything looks beautiful from above and the breathtaking site of watching the animals migrating is indeed something I would do as a bird.
Secondly, I am a person who likes to see people happy at all times. Birds often see people crying alone in parks and while they are unaware of the feelings some of us harbor, it would help if one would come and settle on, for example, my shoulder during such moments. If I were a bird, I would never entertain such sights. I would try my best and make sure that I have cheered at least one person every day. I would attempt the weird dances that human beings go crazy about and make sure that I leave every person I visit smiling. Man’s mind is quite complex but everyone is amazed when an animal does something that we deem ours. Therefore, I would watch and learn man’s weird ways and try and mimic them.
Lastly, if I were a bad, I would like to have the eyes of a hawk, the flying ability and sharp eyesight of an eagle, and still maintain the beauty of a flamingo. Hawks have big eyes and while they might seem scary, they are also quite beautiful and look like they do not like to be tricked. Everyone admires the flying ability of an eagle. Eagles are able to fly higher than any birds and their sharp eyesight allows them to see even the tiniest of details on the ground. However, unlike the eagle which could also be scary, I would like to be beautiful like the flamingo. People admire flamingos and everyone wants to play and even touch them whenever the chance arises. I would like to be a weird and paradoxical bird which would scare and still make people comfortable and happy.
