If I Could
By Belinda van Rensburg
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.

If I Could
By Belinda van Rensburg

If I could touch the silver stars
and free all creatures behind bars,
I'd sail upon the soft warm winds
and release captured living things.

If I could swim the roaring seas
and speak the language of the trees,
I'd teach all mankind to love more
and to repent from making war.

Though I can't do all these great things,
true hope to lost souls I can bring.
On eagle's wings I'll soar up high
and shout His Message from the sky.
