FINDING the LINK
It has ever been so,
But not in form we know.
Darwin’s children wild and free
From first on the trunk of the tree?
We share so much with other branches,
But ours is unique despite your hunches.
Yes, we grew from that very first branch
All changing like the herds on a ranch.
We were like the many other mammals
Suckling young in the first annals
In many respects also in instinct
To begin with, unable to think.
Only to follow others in haste
Picking wild fruits for their sweet taste
Finding anything to stay alive
Grass seed, water weed, honey from the hive.
Following others to kill for food
We fed our family and our brood.
As the proteins enabled us to grow
Our brains became big enough to know.
A body strong enough to stand tall
Tall enough to house a Soul and call
A brain big enough to house a mind,
Mind and Spirit are one in our kind.
Only at that point could we recognise
That we were able to become wise,
That we were able to see who we were.
We were able to think and consider!
If you are still searching for the link?
Do stop your looking and do not think,
Your own history is lying within
Where you will find it without lookin’!
