Man Is Heading To Die. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Does man consider himself superior
To other animals and kill them for food?
'Everything that lives and moves will be
Food for you.' The Bible states and supports
[Genesis: 9: 3]

If man's to advocate such theory
That a superior life can devour
The inferior life, it must apply
Equally among the humans as well.

Harmony must not restrict to human
But to go beyond to between humans
And other animals as his existence
Is linked to other species' existence.

    Harmony must not restrict to human
    But to go beyand between humans
    And other animals as his existence
    Is linked to other species' existence....... and beyand=beyond?
