A Good Thing to Be

On a walk in the woods, it’s not uncommon to transform. Who do you want to be today? I ask.

A hungry lion on the hunt! she’d roar on a Monday.
An abandoned snow puppy, she’d whimper on a Tuesday.
An explorer searching for unknown treasure! she’d cry on a Wednesday.

Who do you want to be today? I ask.
Just me, she says brightly, and I realize it’s a milestone I haven’t yet reached.

A good thing to be, I tell her.

And also myself.
