Other Mothers’ Children

The movement for animal rights
boils down
to this:
respect.
What humans do
to animals
boils down
to this:
stealing other mothers’ children.
At night, we watch
our children sleep
the pit in our stomachs
the fear that someone
will steal our children
do horrible things,
because deep down
we know
what humans do
to so many mothers’ children.

    1. Thank you. I’m currently reading The Lucky Ones: My Passionate Fight for Farm Animals by Jenny Brown. It’s re-igniting my passion for animal activism.
