Of Animals and Humans .....

As I often watch videos of animals rescued and finding love ..
after so much hardship and abuse , sometimes too late ,
and sadly had to cross the rainbow above ...
I’m left with the firm conviction that in them you unfailingly
find God’s beauty and true essence ...
And in their eyes, whether suffering
or finding happiness in their existence ...
You always see the truth in their gaze ,
and never have to doubt the meaning of their ways ...

I often wonder ... where’s the unconditional love and undying
committment in us humans ,
that these animals are all able to show ...
Why with all our intellect and mental faculties
all too many seem to not know ...
All the two-faced pretending ,
the lies people end up saying ...
Why cant we just own up for who we really are ...
say what we really feel ...
but most of all, instead of our worse,
the best of ourselves we share and reveal ...

So I laud the people who can see and feel all these too,
have opened their hearts and their lives
for God’s furry, feathered, bare skinned and what have you ...
In number we may not be as much as is needed for all ,
but we do try what we can
so those in need may not fall ...
