Thoughts in Life

These are the acts of a chicken.
As I crouch and watch them
Go about their daily business
I never cease to ponder the question:
Are they ever curious as to what
Is beyond their wood and wire cage?
They seem so content with
Living in a single spot.
Memory must not matter
Because bored they never seem.
These are the acts of a human.
As I perform these mindless tasks
I wonder why it is so hard.
Contentment is a rarity
Passing only on occasion.
Never am I satisfied
With my daily routine.
No matter how hard I try,
I constantly wonder
What is beyond my home.

Although this poem has a cute and witty exterior, on the inside i found it to be extremely repensive. Very nice work!

A pretty good poem. I can see this being in a poetry book, but just not one i might read. Sorry, even though this is good, this isn't my type of poetry...

Understandable.  =+)  Everyone has their own opinions.  Thanks for reading though.  <><

I really like this poem! And... I just wanted to say that reading that God and Jesus are your heroes on your bio, and seeing the suggestion you made on a forum that it is better not to date until you are ready for marriage, is really a breath of fresh air amongst many worldly posts/stories/etc. that I have read. <>< God Bless!

Thanks so much for your encouraging comment!  It is wonderful to know that someone took notice of what I said and even partially agrees with me.  I know exactly what you mean about all the wordly posts out there and that's why I try and make mine known! God bless you as well!  <><

Wow, this is a great poem!  I've actually wondered about the same thing. :)  I really have no criticism for this.

This is so true! I've wondered that myself, actually. Good job! :)
