Love in Jungle

 

Long lost in the

Jungle of society

I happened to see

Among animals,

A human being!

 

All the animals

Were gnawing

At each other

Wanting to kill

And feed on the dead.

Their sharp teeth

And bloody claws

Could pierce

Soul out of stones.

 

This human,

He did not have

Any of these

Deadly desires

Nor did he

Want to kill any one.

He tried to help

Anyone he could.

 

He even helped

The predator lion

When thorn was

Stuck in his paw.

He even fed

The deadly snakes

Who, he was sure,

Will bite him someday.

 

He fed the foxes

He fed the wolves

He fed the wild bears.

And

All loved him.

 

But, deep in the heart,

He knew very well

Animals are

Animals after all!

To kill is their instinct.

 

Yet, he hated none.

He had compassion

He loved them all.

Love was he!

Love is what

In essence

A Human Being is!
