Half lived lives

Monkeys do not like to hear their tales to the end.
They are satisfied with the half-told yarns –
Perhaps they fret that they would not like the end.
They dump the unheard parts
On the jungle floor, to rot, or,
To be heard by others, who will,
Therefore, only half understand them.
 
People live their lives like that.
They begin living their life all eager and keen,
But then, due to boredom or cowardice,
They throw away the rest of it.
They leave a lot of love and hate
And dreams and hopes and desires and goals
For others to make some sense of.
 
You can find a lot of half-told tales
Lie rotting, in the jungles,
And a lot of half-lived lives
In the cites.
