By Maryam Abdullahi
If I were a bird
I’d live in the wind
Like a leaf on the tree top.
I’d live within the hallowed clouds
And enjoy the consecrated cuddles of the sky.
When its cloudy, sunny or rainy
I’d be fondly lost in the colours of rainbow
I’d laugh at the tickles of thunder
And swim in the sweat of the sun
With feathers flapping freely.
I like to walk but I like to fly
I am far from a bird.
