Animal ‘King’dom

Walking home from work today

I saw a bird soar up high

while I was laden down

with the burdens of my existence

with the worries of my future

and the pressures of my present

And I wonder

if they have it better

If the most intelligent animal

isn’t actually the stupidest

We might be living

but we might not really be living.

Dreamy Night

Her eyes dreamt
Of an inky sky
Speckled with stardust
As a crimson hue trailed behind
The horizon dipping Sun
Shapeless clouds billowed by
And a lightning crack
Split the canvas in two.
She dreamt a dream
Of an endless night
As morning came tiptoeing in
To the fluttering of her eyes.
