The poem(s) are below...



There was an old battle scarred bear, one day the old bear slowly dragged himself out of the woods to die.

Two young hunting dogs saw him and they attacked him.

All the old bear wanted was to die, but the bear reared up and fought the dogs off. 

With all the strength that was left within himself he chased them away, then he layed himself down on a hillside and he died. 

One might ask-if the bear wanted to die then why did he fight the dogs off, why didn't he let the dogs just finish him off.

Because the old bear wanted to die with dignity, and there's no dignity in giving up, when you have the slightest strength left within you, remember that.
