I wrote this poem dedicated to all the animals that end up in the slaughterhouse. After viewing several films on horse slaughter and the slaughter of farm animals I wanted to acknowledge their loss of life. The films of millions of animals slaughtered everyday has made me realize that this is not what should happen to these animals...I am anti-slaughter and felt a need to share. So while it may be a dark poem, we, as a society must never forget that sentient beings feel fear, pain and suffer horrendously at the hands of man. We need to achieve a moral and ethical society. The laws that govern our farm industry must be changed. Thanks for reading this.
darkness enters my soul and beads of perspiration ooze from my essence...
sleep comes in pieces
screams and pictures of your very being bring pain and torture to my soul
knowing..there is nothing I can do but watch
your pain, and anguish
as your life spills out onto the dirty floor
you will never be what you were meant to be
and I sit and watch in horror
knowing, screaming out
and nobody hears
and I can't believe that no one hears
no one helps
other thoughts come fleetingly into my brain
deep down in my bowels
I feel the madness entering my brain
death is a release from this absolute terror
not even sleep is an escape
death o death
come to the nite and release me from this madness
sobbing uncontrollably now
knowing you are finally free
able to be who you were meant to be
but you are not with me
and I come to realize.
that we will never meet again
but have the realization that you are free........
i wonder when .........it will be a better world?
