Thinking Beings

The history of people is one of endless injustice.
and the struggle for justice unending.
  It is a hard thing to be born human,
to learn about 'being' in body and mind--
that it is a temporary condition. 
I doubt the rest of life's great forms
suffer as we thinking beings do.
They do not squander energy
justifying their existence--
they simply exist.

You are so right here. I am a thinking beast. If I am to return at a later time, I think I shall be a slug.
