each one when
we step apart from our shell
instinct drives survival.
there is a task inherent
in the lives of every animal,
to begin their journey toward the next sunset.
Are we not the similar species?
Is not the world order dependent upon
personal sacrifice that lends a hand
while the prize exists directly in front of us.
Perhaps knowing allows some semblance of
a virtue we all struggle to acknowledge
until faced with the reality of being helpless.
Much like the bear symbolic of a blueberry patch,
so does the antelope fear the grasp
of wild prey.
We do humbly walk our path of
humanity driven quests of validation,
each avenue of success tests
the next delivery of mankind
in all its mystery, when less defined a simple reality.
So ravage on human in all of your wildness,
know that the quest to better our lives,
runs parallel with the mystique
of a forest dense with constant growth.
