What Makes Us Human - Poem by Lenore Lee

I believe ability makes us intelligent, it distinguishes us from animals
I believe all have the ability to learn, to create art, to love
I believe we can let our ability go to waste, or we can let it flourish
I believe our ability that makes us human is our intelligence and good judgement
I believe many choose to ignore this ability and rely on animalistic instinct
I believe some humans treat animals better than humans
I believe to make this world peaceful we need to let our abilities flourish

It is curious that many people advocate humane treatment for animals, but treat actual humans inhumanely

    What you believe is right, Lenore.
    The ability to think and feel are very important.Many believe only their 5 senses, but our 5 senses tend to cheat us a bit (think about the raibow, the horizon, the wet looking road on a warm day, ...) . If we try to connect to our soul and let our soul use our mind and heart as its tools, we will know what is true and what is not.
    I really like this thought provoking poem. (Report) Reply
