Small Things

Tiny things, small, unprotected
Open to the evil of the world
Beaten, starved, cold ,neglected
Hiding in a ball, all curled
Trying to survive the horrors
Little tears from little eyes
Have no thought about tomorrow
No-one listens to their cries.
Tiny things too weak to fight fate
In a world that is too rough
For most of them it is too late
To live today would be enough.

Excellent poem..I am an animal lover myself too.I am always searching for stay cats and dogs to feed,or try to find them a home..Your poem has said it all.!! The animals need us humans to take care of them..As a matter of face we just adopted a dog from the animal shelter after our Boomer passed away last year..Good work..!

You have such a big heart and it shows through your work so obviously, truly a humanitarian and an animal lover.
I think so many people don't understand that this world is bigger then just them but not you, you speak for all who are too small or don't speak our language!

There should be more people out there like you!
