What apparent value inherent
motivated your action to reach
search, sacrifice to give, charity’s
illusion or primal longings, inventions
in your head, call for help, from your past
alone, you needed someone to ask
or natural cooperation and selfless service?
At morning, the birds awake, rejoice
without too many cares, maybe snakes
predators to their nest or is there
abundance of manna to collect: insects
and berries provided by Nature’s
merciful order, of how things fully work.
