Question of Life…


They know the answer,

Though they smile and love,

They cannot tell us,

But if they did we would realize it fits like a glove,

Animals all have the answers thereof…


Domesticated they may be,

But longing they are to be free,

Could they live on their own?

Without a doubt for they have the answer to the question…


Is it so tough to find the answer?

Life itself is its own enhancer,

The problems we experience,

Are so much less so than that of a cancer,

What does follow hence?

When life becomes too intense…


Perhaps we should learn from Gods creatures,

They should be our preachers and teachers,

For yes they do have the answer,

But to learn it we must speak their language,

People to animal communication has yet to be an in school feature…

Really liked this one, my friend. And I just watched Jane Goodall's two hour documentary, Talking with Animals, in which all sorts of people, and all sorts of animals, have patiently learned how to communicate with each other. Check it out if you can.
