This World Is A Jungle. You Either Fight Or Run Forever.

I am as agile as a tiger. My color and stripes are my camouflage that I allow me to blend into any setting.  My favorite animal is a tiger because I convinced my younger myself that I was Princess Jasmine. What Desi girl didn’t though? Right, ladies? Jokingly, I always tell my Dad I want a pet tiger. He responds saying, “I wouldn’t be able to afford to feed it let alone take care of it.” Also, there is a good chance it would eat me. It’s a shame that I do not live in the fictional city of Agrabah.


Sometimes, I have those moments where I wish my parents moved back to Pakistan, so I could live like a princess.  And then I remember how spoiled I am to live in a 1st world country where I can have everything I want at my fingertips. I digress. Madonna once said, “Better to live one year as a tiger, then a hundred as a sheep.” This is my year to be a tiger. If you could be reincarnated into any animal, then what would you be?
