Dreams of being other species; shattered

Throughout my life, I’ve romanticized the animal world;

I wished I were a bird so that I could fly and go wherever I wanted

I wished I were an ant and thrived in a social and purposeful society

I wished I were a pet cat and slept comfortably wherever and whenever I wanted while the owner dealt with the politics of money and work

but now I see that it’s hard being these creatures in this present day world:

birds could get hit by man-made airplanes

ant colonies could be run over, discarded, or destroyed by man-made pesticides

An owner can imprison or neglect a pet

My basis has been shattered

do I really wish I were them?

I can’t belive this current post apocalypse type of a human society that I’m living in is supposed to be the “best”

But it’s just so shitty being a human.
