I am

vegetarian to protect Earth's dwindling wildlife

Twelve-years-old

A dog on the highway

Hit by a semi

Two broken legs

I picked up the poor creature in a towel

Bundled him up with warmth, food, water

Nothing could reverse the carelessness of animal cruelty

Passing in my arms

Never again would I taste meat

For the sake of varmints, mutts, and critters alike

Now knowing

I'm a stray myself

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
