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.
We rush through life seeking the end.
Not looking back to see where we've been.
To learn to love all that we see.
To share and care in the smallest degree.
We need to stop and touch and learn,
That the little things deserve concern.
That little spider upon your arm,
Might be your friend he means no harm.
Those little ants trailing along,
Carry food for their weak and strong.
If we would watch for a little while,
We might learn that life's a trial.
And when we have traveled to life’s end.
We can be fulfilled at where we've been.
