IT just is

the fur-friend at your side doesn't love

real friends didn't learn to

a good parent or relative

a genuinely helpful person

It is all that they know

no agenda, no drama

It just is

fish don't know how to swim and spawn

whales to sing, dolphins to be acrobats

birds how to lay eggs and fly

bats in the dark, bees in the honey

It is all that they know

animals doing the animal thing

It just is

a seed doesn't know how to germinate

plants to grow and pollinate

growing oxygen, fruits and vegetables

growing medicine and well-being

It is all that they know

plants doing the plant thing

it just is

our body doesn't know how to keep us alive

organs weren't taught how to work

our immune system how to keep us healthy

how our blood should be blood, cells to be cells

It is all that they know

body doing the body thing

It just is

'our' Earth doesn't know how to be a planet

how to shift, spin and travel in space

the seas and lands weren't taught to be

the weather will only be judged

It is all that it knows

Earth with it's Earth thing

It just is

we earthlings don't know how to be human

how to evolve, survive and populate

how to learn, read, invent and accommodate

how to live with others on our planet home

the way we are will always be

humans with our human thing

It just is
