Animals Are Not Ours To Eat
Look into the animals' eyes
Don't see mere an animal feature
See a friend- A living creature.
They are not ours to eat,
They are not ours to wear,
Are not ours to experiment upon,
Are not ours for entertainment earnings.
They aren't ours to be served in dishes
To stuff ourselves in meals and supper,
They aren't ours to wear in clothes,
In shoes and leathers or skinned robes.
They aren't ours to test for science,
In labs and hospitals or medical researches.
They are the truest being to Nature,
Never wagging the wars dangerous,
With use of bombs and and fire weapons
Never defile the earth and air.
They are truest to ecosystem
Truest to earth and environmental protection.
The most faithful and never lying
For when they tell you something
They mean it ever
They mean forever
They love you most for kind affection
That's a simple but weighty truth.
Go to them with love and affection
The return you get is beyond limitation
Beyond all calculations, beyond all imagination.
Up up my friends and change your looks
To look all creatures as friendly beings,
Be a heart to touch their feelings
To feel their love,
Their truest being.

They are not the food stuffs or slaughter deserving for mere our greeds.
They have life like any of us and deserve the life similarly as a right.
