Maybe like a water buffalo...

Your soul could have chosen
a different kind of body,
one that was not nearly as fragile,

one maybe like a water buffalo,
more suited to fender benders,
lawsuits and corporate fights.

Actually it tried that, your soul,
being other things,
but then decided 
that a form like yours

was the best jumping-off spot,
a springboard you could say,

for your final somersault ... into the Beyond.

Hafiz, from Daniel Ladinsky's A Year With Hafiz
