Just One Voice
By Cyndi Ward
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.

Just One Voice
By Cyndi Ward

Each day I learn, research and read
About all the animals who are in need
The circus, the rodeo, the factory farm
The pain, the fear, the unbelievable harm

The research scientist who causes pain
The dog in the yard chained in the rain
The kitten drowned, the puppy burned
The horrible tragedies of which Iíve learned

The innocent ones they have no choice
The innocent ones they have no voice
The horrors inflicted upon those so dear
And so many people who do not want to hear

Each of us, we have a choice
Each of us, we have a voice
Use your voice to educate
Pass out leaflets, demonstrate
Write letters, boycott stores
Knock on all your neighborsí doors

Use your voice as I have mine
You can help, it just takes time
