Dear human race

Why do you act like you do? We were once of the same playground, we shared everything, good and bad, but then you evolved and you forgot all about us. Growing up, I was in awe in of the human species, I could not believe that you were once like us, an animal aiming for survival

Dear human race

Dear human race

Why do you act like you do? We were once of the same playground, we shared everything, good and bad, but then you evolved and you forgot all about us. Growing up, I was in awe in of the human species, I could not believe that you were once like us, an animal aiming for survival. Now you have risen far above the food chain and taken ownership of the entire world, you have become our custodians, and it pains me to learn about how you abuse your powers. Don't you think about us anymore, don't you care? Such magnificent creatures you are, I cannot even fathom the things that you have achieved, your achievements are the stuff of legend, and yet for all the admiration you garner, it seems that you have completely shut us out and forgotten us. You have seperated yourselves so completely from us that all you see are your intraspecies matters.
You are our natural leaders and yet you kill us mercilessly and without regard, you drive us from our homes, and force us into hiding and humiliation. You treat us as destitutes, as though we are terrorists and trespassers, mere annoyances to the world you own. Of all our species, it is the cats and dogs above all others that you treat with favour, these animals that have evolved to be appeasing to your nature, these are the animals you have earmarked for survival. Is this to be the new law of survival, to be in servitude to the human race? You forget the rest of us.
Do you sincerely wish us gone, dead and forgotten? We too are of the animal kingdom as you are, far below your lofty heights but still connected, still a part of the same whole, a chain intricately linked, you who are our strongest and fiercest link are still a part of that link. Do not forsake us so, we are all in your hands.
Tread lightly, for you tread on our very lives.

Yours sincerely

A disillusioned member of the animal kingdom
