You Have The Choice
By Katie Sceats

This is the season, of joy, love and peace,
so why fill it with greed and hate?
This year, when you celebrate,
leave meat off your plate!

Have you thought of those sweet cute animals,
suffering behind closed doors,
all because of omnivores?

Do you think they don't have a brain?
Do you think they don't feel pain?
There is no justification,
it's just greed and temptation,
killing an innocent animal,
But not out of starvation!

You have the option,
you have the choice,
To help those who don't have a voice!
So before you eat meat,
think to yourself,
is it worth it if I stop a heartbeat?
