Bears are people too

Bears have big ears, for listening.

They don’t say much.

Bears never tell  you to shut up

Or say not to complain that they are biting you.

Bears do not wake you in the night

When their demons are out of control.

Bears listen, and are patient

And do not mind what you think.

You can tell a bear when you are scared, or angry

They will not hurt you. 

A bear is a good friend.

They have their own lives.

We have all been made up

One way or another.

It’s just bears already know this,

And have nothing to prove.
