Acting As Humans

What are we doing ?

We do what humans do,
we find out what is true,
we gather what we can,
knowledge, memories and
predictions from the wise,
many, many supplies.

And ?
What are we doing ?

We do what humans do,
we act without a clue
of how to use all this
to resolve our crisis
we constantly predict
the future will inflict.

And ?
What are we doing ?

We do what humans do,
we plan for just a few
days, months, years ahead,
while focusing instead
on the present we see
as the only guarantee.

And ?
What are we doing ?

We do what humans do,
we choose what to pursue,
on the behalf of need,
or of a higher creed,
or caring for a soul,
or being as a whole.

And ?
What are we doing ?

We do what humans do,
we use a narrow view
and build what we don't see
or know that it could be
a new whole beyond our
comprehension power.

And ?
What are we doing ?

We do what humans do,
we are going into
deeper and deeper loops
and various new groups
of high complexity
and peak perplexity.

And ?
What else could we do,
if not what humans do ?
