I'd rather be a forest than a street.

I'd rather be a creek carving its way beneath the rocks
than a pond.

I'd rather be a wildflower that grows in unexpected corners
than a lily.

I'd rather be a shaft of sunlight that reaches the darkest spaces
than a shadow.

I'd rather cascade majestically like a spring tide
than a wave.

I'd rather trace the murky depths of an ocean 
than skim through it
and call it a life.
