EXIST
Poetry by Tammy C. Smith

I’m looking for a place
perhaps you’ll help me find.
It really does exist,
not only in my mind.

Where each and every creature,
no matter small or great,
May find compassion in this world
and never fear their fate.

Where every living being
with legs or wings or fins
Shares this earth in peace and love
with no torture to begin.

Where blue forever skies float
those who are not scared,
And men with guns and arrows
no more will aim and dare.

Where seas so crystal clear
are filled with those un-chased
Who will never know a net
or in a can be placed.

Where the senseless killing
and born for only deaths
Stop this very second
and all suffer will go with.

Where value of a life
is not based upon mere pelts,
No longer destined to become
shoes and chairs and belts.

Where those considered least
are no longer used to test
Potions made by man
and expensive cosmetics.

Where the only soul you’ll witness
wear a coat of fur
Will be as God intended:
original owner.

Where the heartless man finally
opens up his eyes
And becomes the man he should be:
caring, strong and wise.

I’m looking for this place,
perhaps you’ll help me find.
It really does exist,
not only in my mind.

A place that's true and safe and real,
where all are treated kind,
Here on earth and in our hearts,
perhaps you’ll help me find.
