If food for finer thoughts we did not crave, If sense of purpose we did not apply, If we did not critique how we behave, If dormant laid alert Judgmental Eye… If float and breed were our exclusive wish, If instincts solely spurred us to survive, We might as well be just a school of fish - Without much learning anything of Life. If we ran loose, not playing by the rules, If years weren’t measured by the days we seize, We might as well be just a pack of wolves - With hungry jaws and reflex to appease. If loyalty and trust weren’t our guide, If fam’ly failed to withstand the Time, We might as well be lions, without pride - Where govern male rivalry and crime. If we ignored the term - Personal Growth, Meandering complacently in awe, We might as well be just a slack of sloth - With sluggish status quo, seeking no more. If benefits of thought we didn’t reap, If mindful property we didn’t hold dear, We might as well be just a herd of sheep - That sacrificed their free will out of fear. Brushing aside the kingdom of the wild, Place on a pedestal a Human Mind. With love and progress equally aligned Let’s be the best we can, one of a Kind. As to Judgmental Eye, its primal goal - To keep our planet safe and civil, By virtue of Grey Matter, above all - To distinguish between good and evil.
