“Caesar is domesticated.”
“We are forcing him into domestication.”
“But we treat him as an equal…like a human”
“Humans are not chained. We should let him go.”
They had come to the dense part of the jungle. Clare let Caesar down. He licked her hands and wagged his tail.
“Nobody owns you now, Caesar,” Clare said, softly, “You are free.”
Caesar heard a howl from afar. He took a few tentative steps, then ran into the wild.

A remainder of the lost sea
A child’s delightful collection
are pebbles sculpted by nature
The fascination of the night
The secret it beholds
Erasing sorrows of the cruel day
Offering calmness all the way
Pacifying many a raging hearts
Soothing many a confused minds
Taking them into a world of oblivion
A paradise of calm and peace.
Who compares night to gloom?
And the day to joy?
I will take darkness anytime
Take away the scorching sun
And show me the way to oblivion.
