Poor Frogs.

The story of Poor Frogs:

Once there was a lake that was the haven of the frogs
Frogs which were bothered by the snakes and the dogs

They were eaten by the snakes; the snakes were hunting that lake
And the frogs had no way out to save themselves, satanic snakes.

But there was still a way, White storks!
Yeah, in their ideas the storks will work…

Storks started to hunt the snakes, they hunted them all
And the frogs were happy, and they saw the snake's fall

But……...the time isn't loyal to no one
And it was the time for the Frog's run

Soon there was no food for the hunter white storks
The storks decided to eat the frogs with their forks

In our life, sometimes we will face with some cases
The cases with different people and different faces

We still don't know who will hurt us, our friends or the enemies?
Enemies will bring us down, our the friends will bring us down on our knees?

    howdy ellias, i loved the lines:

    Soon there was no food for the hunter white storks
    The storks decided to eat the frogs with their forks

    not only do the lines have a great rhyme, but it is also (to me) funny to use the word forks (i wonder if the storks had knives as well? spoons?) , and the poem also demonstrates how situations can change so quickly from bad to good to bad etc. but i think the frogs were deluding themselves if they ever really thought the storks were frog-friends.
    people should, for peace of mind, i think, have faith that their friends won't hurt them. people should also be wary of the actions of their enemies. BUT, as some others have said, it is possible to be hurt by friends (hopefully not purposely) . sometimes the hurt caused by a friend is for the good. the hurt from an enemy is more likely to be a REAL HURT. i mean like a broken leg or a burned down house! thanks for sharing.
    unfortunately it seems that a lot off damage is now done to frog populations unwittingly by humans. : ( bri (Report) Reply

    A really evokative piece of writing, first i couldn't help consider the food cycle (i know thats not specifically where you were heading) but my mind laced that thought for a while...how nature can re-evaluate the needs of species and let them evolve for their survival needs and also the frogs maybe became too successful...
    Then the other angle who will hurt us most friend or enemy, we do not expect much from our enemy so in most skip around the edge scenarios, they can never hurt us as much as our friends as we hope and expect our friends to be compassionate and to understand us, know our weaknesses and avoid them....but in reality either can hurt as much as the other, just depends how far they are willing to go.

    I know the answer, who will hurt us friend or enemy, both can hurt us in different angle and shot but the most terrible thing is we can get hurt by ourself..self...because we decide a thing and that will make a different. If we fall we will stand tall again if only we wnat to wake up, need to be independent without friend and enemy..but surely true friend is worthy...will not try to hurt you...but opportunist friend will always take advantage over you_Soul (Report) Reply

    first of all i would like to say it is so brilliant.what a nice idea.
    i believe u r right. some times we faced the enemies but we have to care our backs cause the one who are going to stab us from our backs sometimes is one of our friends.
    the best friends of us sometimes may be our enemies.

    With enemies, we should be forewarned... with 'friends' we sometimes are caught unawares... Terry (good poem) (Report) Reply
