It's Time

Sunshine and a fresh breeze,
Lush fields and tall trees.
Friendship and bonds that will never be broken,
Memories that will never be forgotten.
Families that look out for one another,
Sons and daughters raised with the love of a mother.
A joy it is to live on this beautiful planet,
Healthy long lives lived without regret.

A life of freedom,
A life that we deny them.
Because they are property of humans,
Who enslave them just because they can.
A short life of misery and exploitation,
These sentient beings cry for freedom.
They have no words but their pleas are clear,
"We want to live, we don't want to die here."
Mothers torn from their newborn babies,
Young children slaughtered mercilessly.
They are moral persons, not things,
But we treat them like profit machines.
Over 56 billion murdered a year,
Simply for humans to eat, use and wear.

It's time to stop the killing, violence and oppression,
Time to end all hatred and discrimination.
Time to respect the rights of one another,
Time for peace and love to take over.
We don't need to exploit to survive,
So is it really worth taking innocent lives?
Go vegan, end the use.
They don't have a choice, but you do.

Sunshine and a fresh breeze,
Lush fields and tall trees.
How wonderful it is,
To be free.
