Staying Alive

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

🟡

"

I took a moment from my day

Just to sit and look a while

I saw there was more to life than me

Which brought about a smile

 

A Robin landed a bit away

And gave me quite a stare

Then, hearing a worm below

Pulled it up from there

 

And what else was down below

Trying to avoid being consumed

Not realizing when they were born

Immediately they were doomed

 

I’d like to see things done differently

Where it is not kill or be killed

Where nothing needs to die

Just to have a belly filled

As the ole saying goes, everyone is down-river from someone else! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
