“Starlight Haven” – Poetry

Image result for vegan movement

Birth – meant for convenience and enslavement

Life – valueless, pitiable

Death – merely hours away

Sunlight – a strange word in a foreign language

 

Torture – a way of life

Bone – what you hear scrape against the floor

Blade – to puncture and prod

Smiles – to mock and degrade

 

Festival – an order to purge

Pleasure – permission for pain

Tradition – a dance of slaughter

Normality – the reign of the tyrant

 

Kindness – a rare commodity

Love – a trait of questioning minds

Peace – the mark of a radical

Unity – the goal of the fools

 

Release – the bars no longer confining

Oxygen – a gift of the Gods

Freedom – a strange new reality

Healing – wounds vanish without trace

 

Understanding – the monsters become the angels

Compassion – feather-light touch from iron hands

Sanctuary – the home of all generations

Starlight – defying the armies of death
