“I was born in this cage.
I never felt the cool breeze of the outdoors.
I never walked the soft gravel of the earth.
I never smelled the scent of flowers.
I never heard the wind brushing through the leaves.
I only feel the humid air in this enclosure.
I only walk on the cold metal ground of the cage.
I only smell the blood and fear of other helpless animals.
I only hear the cries and soon silence of my brothers and sisters.
I never experienced freedom.
I never experienced a full life.
I don’t want to die in here…”
There are a few posters of CEASE posters on the T: images of animals in cages at a farm and other NO FUR related concepts. Made me sad. Later, I randomly saw animal rights activists near the commons. Inspired me to draw this sad image.
