Vegetarianism and animal cruelty.Dedicated to vegetarians/those against animal cruelty. P.S-Am a lacto-ovo-vegetarian

Vegetarianism seems to be the fad of the day,
Not adhering to Mother Nature,we'll have a hefty price to pay;
Animals are cruelly raised on factory farms,so dark that there's penetration of hardly a ray,
Shifted into cages,like prisoners,they too have feelings,which they can hardly express or say!
For they're unfortunate,there's no other way,
Except to be processed into meat and stuffed like hay;
Or being slaughtered,tortured with hormonal injections,come whatever may,
Their misery is pitiable,so much for even a hen to lay;
Cruelty imparted towards animals is ubiquitous,from the farm to the bay,
The least we can do is to be aware about the hazards imparted,that can take our physical,mental and spiritual well-being away;

Whether to the environment or to one's health,consumption of meat is not okay,
Ask anyone who'd like to consume a product that's generally in a condition of decay!
If voraciously consumed by gluttons,animal species have not much to stay,
Depletion of animal species and cruelty to animals are reasons for which we need to find,for survival and existence,another way;

Having the will,not merely for a religious cause,we'll know whether our food comes with or without a face,
So that we can choose to ethically treat animals,love them as our kith and kin,and quit the meat-eating race.

Heartbreak- by me during VIT's annual cultural fest Riviera-poetry and creative writing

A complicated emotion is heartbreak,
In the pursuit of frivolous love,we suffer for its sake;
The precursor of heartbreak is love,
Which should inspire us to soar to great heights like a dove;
But sadly,we fall like a killed pigeon,
And suffer like a prisoner trapped in a dungeon;
True love,as a feeling, is misunderstood,
It brings joy and nourishes us like food;
But it is complicated by the addition of expectation from the other,
So much for the first love we suffer, that we cannot love another;
Love in every form surrounds us,it is ubiquitous,
Because on equating love and lust,we create a fuss;
Find love in all living entities,in God,in Nature,
Yet we fail to recognize true love that can nurture;
Romeo and Juliet's love was unrequited,
That means for true love, it's not necessary to be committed.

However,in a relationship,commitment needs to be abided by,
Not respecting the other leads to regrets and heartbreak;
True love,without heartbreak,is like a butterfly,
In its pursuit,we realize it is evasive and fake;
But heartbreak doesn't happen like a dangerous boulder,
When we self-introspect and be patient and dutiful,true love comes to us when the butterfly sits on our shoulder.
