We Are Like Migratory Birds

We are like migratory birds
Who have come upon this earth
From some unknown habitat
For ages and ages
To complete the cycle of life and death.

In enormous flocks
We fly across the oceans of time,
Pre-destined by instinct
To land upon a particular terrain,
Build our niche, procreate, nurture off springs,
And glide back to our original abode
Only to wait for the next season to arrive.

Comments about We Are Like Migratory Birds by EU STRESS

    Florida, and the mass migration
    Is in progress for this generation
    Their bags are packed
    The trailers and rv's secured
    And the winter visitors
    Finally will be gone to distant shores.

    So much for their money
    That jolts our economy
    They have overstayed their welcome
    But they'll soon be gone.
    To their northern home.

    How different from migratory birds
    And other animals responding to reproductive urges.
    These are returning to homes of choice
    Where they''ll not mate and reproduce
    Instead they'll only pollute and foul the nest
    Until next fall when they will do their best
    To resume their migration
    To a place in the sun
    Where they can inhabit distant shores
    And prolong their life as eternal bores.
