Animals Are God’s Creatures

by Alyson Luukkonen

Animals are God’s Creatures
Not ours to take
But why does man often decide their fate

Long before man
The animals roamed
Were no boundaries decided their homes

Then God created man
And brought them to earth
To share the land with his creatures he birthed  

But man wanted more
They did not want to share
They rounded up all the animals
And called them theirs  

From that day forward
Man planted a seed
That grew into a tall seed of greed

They made the animals their slaves
They grew them for meat
Man then thought what a fine treat

But some became pets
A man’s companion a best friend
A friend who fought for them until the end

And so time went on
Many more men where born
And for the animals they were torn

They got left without homes
Left without a friend
No one by their sides until the end

Instead some sit in shelters waiting for a home or to die While others live on a factory farms caged in without ever seeing the sunlight
Only to find out they are being sold for meat
So man can eat a disgusting treat

And the lucky animals
They have a home
Where someone calls them their own
And others have been rescued from becoming meat Where they live on sanctuaries

But yet even good men
Call animals their property
They are called pets to you and me
Because animals now have to depend on man for a home
Where before man they managed just fine on their own

And as time goes on I hope man can see
That Animal’s are God’s Creatures
They are not ours to take
Let us love respect and honor them as our fellow mates!
