Intelligence is Relative
The finest intelligence ,and grandest of the bright,
as shadows are cast in the dark of the night.
illuminated by the moonbeam's flight,
in the daylight hours, by a warming sun's light.
Gives credence to the answer, proposed by a man,
we do what we do, achieve, as we all can.
We accept the challenges, is to be our stands,
never limiting our ability, in work of our hands.
Is the bird that flies to its Winter's retreats,
so gifted in intellect, beyond thoughts greatest feats,
Perhaps the bear that sleeps through the season,
more gifted in insight, whatever the reason?
Does the lowly insect that sheds it brown shell,
know why it becomes a butterfly, so frail,
Should the whales and bright fish in the sea,
be understanding of the seasons, that are to be?
When is a human so intuitive, and in a position,
that each may be superior, in their earthly cognition,
Must we then label our superior perception,
a product of evolution, in its relative deception?
What does determine the extent of success,
that the human race, can achieve at its best,
Does the conquering of travel to outposts in space,
give us the rights, to stand tall in our place?
The renowned speculation, that of relativity,
more clearly in focus, thus giving its clarity,
A species may not question, its conception, the lives,
is directed and rejected by only its drives.
The truth of the matter, goes far beyond reproach,
with a limit in neurons, is impossible to encroach.
The ascension, on the ladder, the progression of every man,
met in his work, and how he strives, by his hand.
