With so much beauty in the world
Couldn’t I have been born
As anything but this flawed being
That I am?

In a world of waterfall and trees
Wolves, foxes, squirrels and fawns,
With buzzing wasps and bees,
Flying doves and silent swans
Why ain’t I one of these?

If I float in the universe alongside galaxies,
Comets and stars,
Not too far from black holes
And even closer to Mars,
Why ain’t I from one of those?

When I’m surrounded by the arias,
The poetry and the paintings,
By the sculptures and the buildings,
The songs and the plays,
Why ain’t I one of these makings?

When I die I’ll be music.
What about you?
And number 65. Music of my 100 Theme Challenge.
I've written this is January, but I didn't think it was good enough at the time, so I didn't post it. But now that I've reread it, I don't think it's too bad. And it's kinda nice to use the phrase everyone seems to love so much.
