If I Were a Bird
The world of realities is dull and boring. It gets on our nerves. We can find escape from it only through imagination. It is imagination which makes life tolerable. It transports us to the world of beauty and romance. What we can’t get or become in reality we can achieve that with the help of imagination. Sometimes I wish to become a bird.
If I were a bird, I would live among green trees. I would not have to face housing problem. I would make my nest on any tree of my choice. I would not bother about the cost of living. I would be free to gather my food from any place. I would not be subject to any human law.
If I were a bird, I would not have to study. The fear of examinations would not haunt me. I would not have to get up early and go to with a bag full of books. Money-matter would not worry me. The question of employment, earning, spending and saving would not arise in my life. I would be happy to live in the company of nature.
If I were a bird, I would live in an ideal world. My world would be free from all evils of human society. It would be a world where corruption and dishonesty would be out of place. There would be no pollution any kind. I would breathe fresh air and sing glories of God. I would high in the sky. I would see how clouds burst and cause rain. While flying in the sky, I would look downward. I would enjoy the sights of tall mountains, green forests and deep seas. But it is sad that imagination can’t keep us away from the world of realities forever.
