FEAR, COURAGE, AND JUNGLE BEASTS

FEAR, COURAGE, AND JUNGLE BEASTS

I walked into the jungle alone,

With great trepidation and dread,

And with no gun or smart phone,

I just knew I’d soon be dead!

 

Should we thus fear life?

And dread each day til we’re old?

Must we experience strife?

And endure daily miseries untold?

 

Or should we plunge into the dark,

And face the jungle without fear?

Is the answer so stark?

Is that why we are here?

 

Sorry!  I’m no Socratic scholar!

But I finally found peace, at least!

Didn’t you hear me holler?

When I was eaten by a jungle beast?!   🙂
