I awoke from a nightmare. I was sweaty, trembling, and unable to move. I did not know why it was that a simple nightmare caused my limbs to freeze so. I felt as though a huge weight was pressing itself against me on the bed. When I finally regained movement of my limbs I realized that I had grown a tail and ears above my head. At first, it came to me as a shock and then I realized that it was probably the effects of this dream. I must still be dreaming, I thought to myself. I thought I was in a dream within a dream where the strangest things happen while one is almost conscious. However, as I walked to the mirror to scope out my new body, I realized that it was not the case. I had become and animal and had no idea why. I was not afraid of this change, but more welcomed it with an accepting smile. Perhaps, I would not stand out so much with my new body. Perhaps, those around would not find me as annoying for being different. I imagine my tail will generate some form of acceptance with my peers. It could very well be that this change that I would have seen as a nightmare could very well be my ticket to becoming understood by those around me. After I looked at myself for a second, and took in my new appearance (That I found quite becoming), I decided it was time to show it off to the world. As I walked outside and compared my tail and ears to everyone else’s on the streets, it dawned onto to me that I had become one of them. A slobbering, judgmental animal whose value is brought upon how big their tail is or how acute their hearing is. I became saddened by my new appearance and rushed back inside hoping and praying to whatever God is out there to change me back into my normal self. I would rather be myself than a slobbering creature—a slave to society any day.
