Relatively Speaking

Updated on February 18, 2017

All of life is relative, tentative upon those precepts intended,

Restricted, only contingent traits, unlikely qualities rescinded.

A cold natured turtle hibernates, humankind puts on a jacket,

Smallest creatures never do gamble, people make it a racket.

Einstein, his well-known "Theory of Relativity", dependent, only modified,

Famous notes of a celebrity may mean the most when to say, as qualified.

Insects to make the most of a shorter life, instinctively choose right moves,

While larger creatures, rarely go astray, make best choices, as it behoves,

The earth's smallest to the greatest, governed by the inborn traits,

Everyone accepts the most that all's lives to put upon their plates.

Each child of God displays acts, a proportion in sizes of the brain,

It tells the wisest species of the woods, to go inside out of the rain.

One would suspect Humanity, by now had learned valued lessons,

Although often behaviours shown, seem to lose their very essence.

Each relative, restrictive, contingent upon that moment, so required,

Making the right choice, higher intellects all to voice, unless expired.

      We can learn a lot from nature and its animal kingdom. When will we stop long enough to observe?
