Survival

Survival

To know that we have done our best,
Not just to survive and stay alive,
But to help others along the way –
That, to me, is the difference
Between man and the animals.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

    • Good question, Sidey! Animals and birds that help each other would be mothers, and sometimes fathers, helping and defending their young, elephants rescuing their young from being stuck in the mud on the riverbank. As far as I know, animals don’t help other species except, perhaps dogs who have been known to assist people without being instructed (trained) to do so. I have my own ‘theory’ about these special animals ascending perhaps to human status in the afterlife or through reincarnation. It is only my belief. (I have been waiting all day for someone to ask me your question, lol.)

  7. Another difference between man and animals is that animals kill with what they are born with. Man creates new ways as he goes! 🙂
