Dream

Posted May 11, 2009 & filed under Notebook.

I wish I could touch the sky
And see air
And live forever
I could be a giant
And a good person
And be at the White House
And be famous
I could be stronger than everybody
A cute girl
And eat ice cream all day
Today, tomorrow, and every day

Elephant Wishes

I always wanted to go somewhere
where there were no poachers
and we could rest more
and not get eaten by lions.
I always wanted to be the Emperor of China
and I would banish all of the poachers
and send them to Madagascar.
