Image – “Be Kind To All Kinds”

Jan 16, 2024

A lot of you despise me,
And I don’t understand why.
I am not ugly or deserving of your hate.
I survive every day on the streets,
That used to be meadows.
There are no tasty seeds,
Because you turned trees into buildings.
I eat what you throw on the ground,
Because I have no choice.
Water is harder and harder to find.
Do you know what it takes to survive in a world that is not mine anymore?
Please don’t scare me or hurt me,
Just let me live –
Live in your world that was once mine..
