As you are, as they are

DSCN3873 People treat you

People respond to you as they are.

This we know is true.

Animals, much different, respond as we are.

Did you know this too?

A dog, a horse, even a cow can tell

and without a word move you.

Animals know us as we are,

there is an honesty in it too.

Forgiving as easily as they breathe

can we do as they do?

People respond to us as they are.

This we know is true.

Can’t we change that?

    I believe that animals instinctively know us as we are ~ We can learn forgiveness from them surely ~

    Wow, so very true. Animals are good judges of people for sure. They see us straight through to our hearts and are NOT fooled. As for whether we can change anything as far as people…I don’t think so. Animals don’t have all of the abilities that humans have; and humans don’t have all of the abilities animals have. We just have to accept that….AND listen to the animals. Smiles.

    I love this… and it’s also why I love animals so much.
