The Reasoning of the Flock

Updated on November 28, 2010

The question was posed...

why we strive and aggress...

perhaps a moments pause will do...

laying bare what is in our hearts...

my attempt as telling of me then you...

why do we strive...

squawking away...

for green paper bread...

things in mall wrapping...

striving to have what others do not...

seeking to stay even with what others have got...

seeking pleasure that keeps our nest plush...

trying to forget there is anything more to us...

round and around...

the cycle is our fetish...

going through life in oblivious relish...

till one day it ends all a sudden...

no warning given and are left all alone with our thoughts.


What should we have done with the time we were given...

were greenbacks really enough?

Wasn't there more then a cyclical whore...

telling us what it was for in the end?

Why had we a mind?

Did we use it?

developing it for all it could be...

What were our emotions...

did we feel through them...

enjoying, embellishing each minute sensitivity...

What were our eyes for...

surely not to be blind...

did we see what life presented for view?

What were our feet for...

our hands and our hearts...

did they do what gave joy for them to do?

Did we serve ourselves or ever each other?

Was our neighbor our brother...

or sister to cherish and praise?

You can read this rhyme...

so you may still have time...

to consider what to do with today.

      That is a very affirmative statement there Malin. The only thing I can think of to work for is for the betterment of self and for the betterment of those around one. Your very welcome by the way.

      Life is to be lived, loved and enjoyed. Yes we need to work hard, sometimes too hard and sometimes for what? Contentment is so easy to come by and it costs nothing. Thanks for sharing.
