Pluck of the Duck

IMG_6659

So if you really want to eat me,

you will have to catch me first.

I will not make it easy for you,

I’m fast so you’ll work up a thirst.

I’m called duck as I have pluck,

I won’t give up life just like that.

If you really are that inclined,

why don’t you eat your pet cat.

Oh yes, my beak is quite a tool,

I’ll go first for your eyes if I can.

Really I’d think about it my friend,

why don’t you become a vegan.

I can’t quite get my head around the fact that people want to eat these beautiful creatures, life and let live they say, but surely that goes for all. ~

If

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d live a life far more true.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d be more honest with you.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d jump off the cliff like a bird.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d shout until I was heard.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d stamp out hate on the earth.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

sometimes I’d put myself first.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d follow a path that is clear.¬†

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d keep those promises dear.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d sing to the stars and the moon.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I really would come into bloom.

And if I ever have enough courage,

I’ll do what I’m destined to do.

When I do have enough courage,

I’ll take you along with me to.

Now that I have enough courage,

I’m making the changes I should.

I really do have enough courage,

to bring to my life all that’s good.
