How Did I Get Here

I closed my eyes, and wondered.
What would it be like,
To soar like an eagle,
Run like a cheetah,
Swim like a dolphin, 
Or roar like a lion?
What would it be like to be something else?
Something other than the person I am?
Something other than me?
I closed my eyes, and wondered.
What would it be like?
When I opened them I knew.
And it wasn't what I wanted.
I wanted to be strong.
I wanted to be something else.
But I didn't think about changing back.
And now...
Now I can't.
My worst regret is that I didn't say goodbye.
After all, a lion can't speak words that humans will understand.
Now I am stuck here.
Stuck in this situation I should have seen coming, but didn't.
What have I done..?
