Not So Different You And I

I am a living being
With eyes that see
With ears that hear
but I have fur
and you have hair
I am a living being
but you have nails
and I have claws
and you have hands
but I have paws
I bark 
You speak
I howl
You weep
I am a living being
I feel sadness, happiness
loneliness and pain
We are living beings
When we hurt we hurt the same

    Thank you. My sister works for an animal hospital and she brings home orphaned baby animals from time to time. I'm currently helping her raise two baby otters. I wrote this before I bagan helping with the animals but the experience only reinforced my love and respect for all life. Well, maybe not bugs but I'm working on that! Ha ha!

    Thanks for reading and commenting. I was watching something on the conditions of factory farms and a documentary on Vivisection and what a sham it really is so this just came out. xoxo
