You see things; and you say, "Why?" But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"
It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.

The Rainforest
My family is the deceiving Amazon rainforest;
Beautiful and calm on the outside, but not so much when you look in
My father is the cunning, jungle jaguar;
Solitary and wise, lashing out when you least expect it to defend what he cares for
My mother is the powerful, river anaconda;
Crushing and smothering you with her excessive demands and undying love
My sister is the talkative, treetop parrot;
Loud and persistent, never getting that sometimes it’s a little too much
My brother is the playful, canopy monkey;
Jumping and leaping from branch to branch, without a care in the world
My cat is the lazy, hanging sloth;
Sleeping and eating, existing to do nothing more than be adorable
And I, I am the misplaced Arctic wolf;
Howling and crying at the night sky, wishing she could belong
