The Zealous Eagle

Good to know...
Eagles fidelity rate is very high meaning that the divorce rate in these species is low. More than 90% of eagles are likely to stay with their partner until they die. Source: The Centre for Conservation
You, the symbol of power,
Freedom, majesty and perfection
Free spirit, high soaring and courageous,
With your death defying swoops
And spiral free flowing in the air,
Do you even know the meaning of life?
We admire you and we see ourselves in you
Wildly struggling to survive
In a world dominated by greed
And the needs of human beings
Not knowing why we’re here
Or what could have been our purpose in life?
While you tolerate the noise
And disturbance around you
We’re more often afraid and we fret
This noise drives away our own sanity
While you flushed and fly high on the wind
Without any effort in flapping your wings.
Why can we not have your sharp vision
The ability to see beyond
The grand scheme of things
Why do we have to pause, halt and look around
Up and below, peep through the hole
Simply to create a peaceful illusion.
You and I, us humans, our individualities
And the lifeblood of who we are
Rushing to get to a certain point in our lives
But in a different direction
And unlike you who are so focused
We’ve lost sight of where we’re going.
We wonder what you say
Before your every flight
Do you even pray to be safe?
And while we kick and scream with faith
You always get through all the storms
You are an amazing creature.
Love and devotion comes naturally from you
You let go of each other, then fly back up in the sky
With the tenacity to return to your nest
If only humans can be like you
Strong, courageous and zealous
Then in our own nest, we won’t feel forlorn.
My idea of high flying life style is...
To fly high and free around the mountain. Soar in spiritual realms and perhaps, touch the face of God. ~
