    ANTS

    I envy the ants,
    they have a goal set,
    some to protect the colony,
    some to scavenge food,
    some to gather food,
    some to nurse the queen,
    they choose the road
    whether to avoid or continue,
    through scent.
    They are patient and diligent,
    and always prepared for the rain.
    Why is it that ants are more human
    than humans ever will?
    Why do we have to live with these
    overwhelming emotions that blurries
    the goals predetermined,
    and blocks the senses?
