Don't waste time. Start procrastinating now.

We’re no different, bird,
you and me,
‘cept I live in a house
you live in a tree.

We both like to sing
with our hearts full of cheer,
and we both feel the chill
when the winter is near.

We both love to splash
in the heat of the day,
and when we’re afraid,
we both fly away.

Could you sleep in my bed,
or I in your tree?
Because we really aren’t different,
no, not you and me.

"Someday soon we're gonna catch that dream we've been chasing"
"Seven days without a horse makes one weak."
"The worst part of riding is when you dismount."

Insult my clothes, I say, “Okay, thanks for the compliment.”
Insult the way I look, I say, “Thanks for notifying me.”
Mock me and say riding isn’t a sport, and I’ll say,”You say that ’cause you can’t ride.” But before you make fun of my horse, make sure you have “911″ on your speed dial.

I loved this! :)

Birds are like us in a way! Great job on creating this poem!!
