“I’m Running”

(Animal Rights Poem By Paul Schulman)


I’m running

Oh so far


Up ahead in the dark


All of the others

Hung by a rope

Destined, lifeless

With sliced throats


They say

Animals have no feelings

I’m crying

The lives they’re stealing


I got away

Into the night

Moon shining

Oh so bright


Legs burning


Heart yearning



I collapsed

In a field of dust

They grasped their weapons

As they cussed


Soon after

I woke up

In a sanctuary

Full of love

About the author

I began this website as a way to showcase that going vegan is easy, cost-effective, delicious, and most importantly, fun. No animal has to suffer or die for a meal. Since the age of four, I have not eaten meat. I learned at a young age that the family puppy shared the same types of emotions as wild animals and farm animals. I never thought that it was okay to exploit them. Twelve years ago, I gave up cheese, not knowing the suffering through which cows had gone. I am dedicated to the vegan lifestyle, animal advocacy, and in furthering the social justice movements for all people, animals, and the planet. I am pleased to announce that since this blog began in 2014, there are many more vegan businesses from restaurants, a fully vegan shopping center, a school that only serves vegan food, and a vegan medical center. Although I have no affiliation with them, I feel that it is noteworthy to say that the movement is growing, and I hope to see the property status of animals one day change to acknowledge them as "persons," not things.
