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.
