The Raptors of the World
Not a single creature so well defines,
the most characteristics of Mankind.
That represent the good and the bad,
as our sun overhead, has shined.
The raptors of the world, so many,
and such beauty is in them to behold,
They soar the heights in their flights,
with such a passion, and so bold.
The reflection of their fierceness,
with determination and strong resolve,
The awesome wonder of them each,
speaks of how humans did evolve.
To become the highest forms of life,
to exist, and so dwell upon this earth,
A proving of the substances, of each,
that gives a statement to their worth.
The hawks, the owls, the falcons swift,
with sharp beaks and talons to hone,
Give a credibility in their attacks,
that many creatures, their prey, are shown.
As in the actions shown of men, these traits,
appearing as well, their's, to blame,
Yet, a refusal to admit in all confidence,
that our methods, are much the same.
Such beauty is in the fine graces shown,
in their lift, and with their beating wings,
The birds of prey, and the Raptors watch,
all men's wrongs, in a thousand things.
These birds would deny the evil seen there,
as a likeness and all never to claim,
These common bonds have limitations,
to break away from the bad, in its shame.
Birds of the feather and with glistening eyes,
above the winds and in freedom, to sail,
With the care of men, and how each will survive,
determines, if in life, they shall prevail.
As is the case in the human condition,
and the nature of acts, that we each display,
Bring about a quality of life, on our green planet now,
our futures made, in every way.
