Are The Animals Lost in a Mist
Are the animals lost in a mist
a great mist of ignorance and power?
Has man’s great lust for money and wealth
blinded him from life on the earth?
Life given by god to be cherished and loved
the gift to grow and be free.
Many were here before man lost his way
sole tenants of Nature’s great earth.
Man builds and he plants, talking all in his reach
no concern for those in his way.
Not really caring who’s discarded or lost
it’s just man’s cold, hard way.
Not approved by our God nor the animals on earth
man is far too greedy and harsh.
Why can’t man learn from the animals
their Rules for Coexistence in Life?
Is caring and sharing so foreign to man
has his heart turned cold and closed?
If he opens his heart to God’s loving ways
the veil of his ignorance will life.
He will love again, be kind and share
see the animals come out of the mist.
