Love

There has to be
More love on earth between people
Where we refrain from harsh speech and actions
And love our neighbours as we love ourselves;

There has to be
More love on this planet for the animals
Where we refrain from willingly killing them or eating them
And remember that they too are living beings like us;

There has to be
More kindness and compassion in this world
Where all living creatures can co-exist peacefully together
Whether human, insect or animal;

Love transcends religion and doctrine:
It exceeds whatever man-made structure or system there is
And goes beyond all the rigidities that sometimes detract
Because love comes not from us;

It is from the universe or God or creator or however you know it
Where it is for us to share to make lives better for ourselves
As well as for all living beings around us so that
All things good can prevail and exist in this world;

Love.

(I would like to recommend a meat-free diet for everyone, because the animals deserve to live and the butchers should be spared from the cruelties of killing. Yes indeed, we eat what we eat.. but I think the animals deserve a chance too.)
