I wish I am



You envy the birds
freedom they enjoy
You adore flowers
fragrance they possess
You respect old trees
enduring time
You esteem the rivers
flowing endlessly

I wish I’m a bird
that you envy so much
hope I can be a flower
You’ll kiss and adore
be an old tree
to gain your respect
be one of the rivers
You revere.

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
