A Home Is A Better Place
By Nicole Hart
An Animal Rights Poem from All-Creatures.org

All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.

A Home Is A Better Place
By Nicole Hart

However I was loved by you, you did not want me, 
Most of my life was in my own shadow.
I now stalk the streets hunting for food, 
Nothing is out there to keep me happy.
Love was my joy, my burden, and my sorrow,
But now I am nothing.
Now I have no home, violence has surrounded me.
I was the object of all eyes,
But in my own eyes, I am close to perfection.
Could someone just hold me one more time;
Except now they fear me, and move away.
