Seventy
By Mary T. Hoffman
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.

Seventy
By Mary T. Hoffman

Today Iím all of seventy;
How quickly time has flown,
With memories a-plenty
My book of life has grown.

Thereís so much more to do
For creatures and their right
To live as God intended;
We have to shine the light
So they will be defended:

Expose their hidden pain;
Their suffering, replace Ė 
So only good will reign,
Let kindness take its place.
