Born into industrial dairy
Stolen from my mother, scary
In pain, frightened, alone, so very
All for your unnecessary
I was saved, & brought to a sanctuary

Visitors saw me
Not an ‘it’. ME
I was free
I opened eyes, you see
They saw my calmness
I stood flawless
My eyes asked ‘Do not harm us’
In my presence, they were honest
And saw the cruelties inflicted upon us
They embraced me, solace
And to me, they made a promise

Be Vegan
Dig Out Your Soul
