How do you feel now,
You who were David for three thousand years,
The lone shepherd boy,
Armed only with stones, against a monster
Who would destroy your people,
And only you to save them?
How do you feel now
To have nothing to fear but the mirror
That reflects only you,
Yourself become the monster, armed to the teeth,
Against a lone shepherd boy,
Armed only with stones?

Time is Too Slow for those who Wait, Too Swift for those who Fear, Too Long for those who Grieve, Too Short for those who Rejoice; But for those who Love, Time is not. By Henry van Dyke
A sperm whale feeds her young in the Indian Ocean by injecting milk into the sea.
The milk can be seen being injected into the water and the calf rushing to feed on the nutritious milk.
