THE VOW

Forgive me for my actions were learned
I ate you and was never concerned
But I can't eat you anymore
I wish I would've done this long before

Visions of your death haunt my soul
but now I call you friend and I'm whole
I can look in your eyes now peaceful beast
for on your flesh I no longer feast

I've seen the callous acts us humans can do
there is much humanity to be learned from you
Without a thought ~ your lives we steal
it's just not worth a simple meal

We justify your death with reasons of greed
but to find peace with you is all we need
Perhaps someday there will be harmony
and no longer your living graves we'll be

I have learned from you to be kind
and to see the faces on which I've dined
I will do all I can to defend you now
I give you this, my solemn vow
