Poetry!
If Only
If Only I was not Human
If only I was not human
I would be so content
So happy.

If only I was a panther
Dark and fierce
I could petrify but also care.

If only I was a dragon
So beautiful and elegant
I would fly till I could fly no more.

If only I was a dolphin
in a curved arc above the water
I would swim all day and night.

If only I was a kitten
So cute and playful
I wouldn't have a care in the world.

If only I was not human
I would be so content
So happy.

If only the world was a better place
If only the world was a better place
Without crime or war
Only peace and tranquility.

If only there was no pollution
Animals would not die
Rivers would be clean
Air would be pure.

If only there was no murder
People would not die
Animals would not go extinct
All would live peacefully.

If only there was no global warming
Ice caps would not melt
Arctic animals would not be forced to move
People would not be scared.

If only there was no war
No young people would die
No innocent people lose their lives
Countries could get along.

If only their was no possession
People would not be obsessive of money
Everyone would have what they needed
No one would starve.

If only the world was a better place
Without crime or war
Only peace and tranquility.

If only I could not feel pain
If only I could not feel pain
I would not suffer
not feel hurt when I am away from those I love
when I hear a sad song
when I see an innocent person die
when people are feeling hardship
and others don't care
I hate the feelings
that try to tell me
that people don't care
when I hear of bombing in countries
where people that did nothing die.

If only I could only feel the pain of scrapes and cuts
for they do not run deep
while your skin or a bone heals
words and feelings stay forever.

Please tell me what you think of this!

I ran
like never before.
I ran
with speed never seen.

With each step,
each footmark in the snow,
with every cold, icy breath,
my anger grew, and sadness along with it.

I heard my name
called desperately from behind.
The voice held confusion and sadness.
I kept running.

I heard heavy footfalls, panting
someone giving chase.
I didn't look back,
I didn't slow.

Rounding a corner, I paused,
Should I…? I wondered.
No. The answer came fast and strong.
They are dead to you now.

Though the words came from me
I knew they were not true
only what I wished.
I sighed and ran on.

I did not stop
not until I reached a field
a field I knew well
I ran down to a small hill
and lay in the snow.
My worries, my pains,
my anger, my sadness,
everything melted away
but happiness and calm.
