by Donna Anderson -
I cannot look into a mother cow's eyes
without feeling her pain
Her children enter a vicious cycle
and from this what will she gain?
I cannot touch the fur of a fox,
the image of blood flows through my mind.
It's skin will be torn from its back.
Haven't we advanced further in time?
We are all as one with nature,
though humans do not realize.
We were put her to share this planet
and not to walk away from the pain in another's eyes.
