ALL of THIS
Why should I feel guilty
if I eat meat from a slaughtered animal?
Fish and animals have probably
not a bad conscience when doing so.
Why should I be so concerned about something
that is so essential for the survival
of the majority of nature’s inhabitants.
I am just a peg in this cycle.
So, why should I feel guilty?
Maybe I should feel guilty because
I’m part of a system that is neither fair nor pretty.
Actually, it’s a very cruel system
with its light and dark side.
A light side that can be very joyful and heartwarming,
Whereas the dark side can be traumatically abominable.
Neither logic nor feelings want to tolerate or accept this.
And I’ve created all of this.
