Let’s Begin Today – A Veganic Poem

by Marilyn Cornelius

let’s begin today
the path to life
is through life
beautiful
organic
and vegan
farming
is veganic:
with animals
free to live
full lives
not as commodities
but as individuals
in a world
rapidly warming
we need love
not slaughter
we need land
restored
with forest
and water
there’s a gentle
and peaceful way
to a brighter tomorrow
let’s begin today
transforming
agriculture
into mindfulness
we uproot
violence
and plant
kindness
allowing life
to commune
in balance
we embody a new vision
out of a past
filled with blindness
choosing
life
in a way
that is complete
where
we cooperate
and share
instead of fighting
to compete…
in a world
desperate
for healing
veganics
offers
a path
that is kind
and revealing
a soulful
harmony
of life
and food
feeding the hungry
and “doing well
by doing good”*

*A phrase often used by the late eminent climatologist, Steve Schneider.
