If I could, I would be a nightingale
Sitting on the boughs and singing my tales
And everyone loving my voice
Even though the fables being of my choice
I would freely soar high without any end
And thus setting up my own new trend.
If I could, I would time travel
Rectifying my past mistakes beyond my level
Reliving twice the most happy moments
Not caring much then, I now lament
Doing what I didn’t at that time
And setting up subtly my new paradigm.
If I could, I would be a phoenix
Even if I fall after a jinx
I would again rise and arise
Much stronger than my previous size
Not just I will sit back and regret
And falsely assume that I can never move ahead playing my already run out cassette
If I could, I would become invisible
And thus becoming highly invincible
I would go business class around the world for free
How much will I love not to pay and be on a shopping spree
I would help the poor and needy with loads of gifts
And watch their elated faces without getting sniffed.
If I could, I should be my own
Not being a nightingale, a phoenix or time travel or be invisible but hone
But the qualities and capabilities they symbolize, we should retain
And reflect it to others and entertain
Don’t go the easy way pretending someone you are not, so be a little wise
Thus carving in this world your own niche, your own little happy paradise.
