FATE
Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

In sunlight
We walk in darkness
In ignorance
Indifference
To the sufferings of
Other life which
Shares with us..
This earth!
The animals
Have no voice
To speak up
To defend themselves
To tell the world
What their lives
Are worth!
For me
It's hard to understand
What goes on in the mind
Of man...
Has he no feeling
In his heart and soul?
To poison air
And sea and sod
To think and act
Like he is God
Never realizing
We all can die...
We can!
We ALL must open
Mind and eye
To those on land
Those which fly
For ALL life is connected
To that of man!
For God's Spirit is in
ALL LIFE..
Extinction, wars, social strife
To share the earth
We had better make
A stand.........!
