Through opened eyes we clearly see and answer the animal's plea We must see what others ignore so we alone must unlock secrecy's door
We look inside the anguished eyes and we have the burden to be wise When others cover their ears we are the ones to fight the tears
All of our strength it takes to endure when our heart aches When the images etch our mind its justice we struggle to find
The screams mark our soul to end the agony our common goal Silencing the wails cannot wait in our hands we hold their fate
If only others would lend their voice and for the helpless makes the choice With each action we destroy or defend on each decision so many lives depend
In a world so full of disgard and indifference, there are those people who stand up against the odds to protect those weaker then themselves. With their voice, they have given word to those who cannot speak. With their actions, they have paved the rocky road for generations to come. With will and strength they have changed the lives of so many. And with all their courage they fight this fight relentless in the hopes of opening just one blind eye. They risk the countless sneers to the right the wrongs. And these people, through their mercy and sacrifices deserve our respect and thanks. They are the animal's voice, support, strength, lifeline and only hope. You know who you are and you do make a difference...never give up.
