I WANT TO LIVE

FROM THE SOULS OF THE ANIMALS

I WANT TO LIVE

I want to live. I don’t want to die.

They watch me suffer in a trap.

I plead, but they won’t help me.

I don’t know why.

 I want to live. I don’t want to die.

They take me from me home

And imprison me in a cage.

I don’t know why.

 

I want to live. I don’t want to die.

They tie a rope around my neck.

Drag my trembling body from the cage.

I don’t know why.

 

I want to live. I don’t want to die.

They throw me to the ground

And beat me like they hate me.

I don’t know why.

 

I want to live. I don’t want to die.

My body aches in pain.

Their knife rips through my skin.

I don’t know why.

 

I want to live. I don’t want to die.

Shivering, I am so cold.

They throw me naked in the trash.

I don’t know why.

 

I want to live. I don’t want to die.

I cry, but no one will save me.

I take my last breath

And ask God why.

CRY OF THE INNOCENT: The Voices That Can’t Speak is a groundbreaking series of films probing into the deeper layers of the psyche to help heal the ‘condition of disconnect’ of an egocentric society that perpetuates the holocaust of animals, with its center on the fur trade as a paradigm of a larger nemesis permeating our world.  The films will move society to see with the eyes of the soul and carry their cries for salvation across the great divide of egocentrism to transform consciousness and evolve humanity.

The cruelty inflicted upon millions of sentient beings with no moral conscience or ethical boundaries is a violation of animal rights at its core.  It is clear that until the consciousness of society is brought to a higher place of understanding, the fight for animal welfare will continue with no end in sight.  Without our voice, the animals have no voice.



Our movie shorts have screened around the world with precedent-setting media coverage, including China, the world’s largest supplier of animal skins and the mecca of the largely unknown cat and dog fur trade.

We are seeking benefactors, sponsors, celebrity support, and angel donors to support our work to evolve huimanity and give them a voice.

Thank you on behalf of the animals.

“Extraordinary, a brave and vitally important piece of work”… “Riveting!!”…”Wow, powerful and gripping!”… “A documentary unlike any about animal cruelty”… “Very deeply affecting, this film is going to be big.”

“Cry of the Innocent: The Voices that Can’t Speak is a monumental film and call to action that is a magnificent contribution to the animal rights movement.” – Dr. Shenita Etwaroo

“A revealing new film explores the psychological and spiritual factors that contribute to animal cruelty in the fur industry. Rather than merely covering tales of brutality, Cry of the Innocent: The Voices That Can’t Speak interprets from the “soul perspective” in an attempt to explore the underlying source of animal abuse and the subsequent disconnection in society. As Lowson has stated: “The power of respect will change our world” – respect for ourselves and respect for life.” – National Geographic News Watch

  1. Furs are something every vain man or woman desire. Each bit of fur not only takes an innocent life away; it takes it away in the most gruesome manner possible. Fur farms use the cheapest way possible to kill an animal, so they are often beaten to death, suffocated or bled until they die. The animals are also skinned alive and then left to die a slow and agonizing death.

  2. Thank you for what you do. Please let me know how I can help.

  3. The poem brought tears to my eyes. Yes karma is real for those who do this to defenceless creatures… their time will come!

  4. I will never understand how humans can be so cruel. It makes me ashamed to call myself a human. When will people realize that animals are so much more than food or something to wear.

  5. What are we? Are we really human beings? Did god make us like this? Did we come to earth to kill other living beings, to skin them alive to wear their skin for fashion to show how rich we are? How would we feel if we were skinned alive for someone else to use our skin? I wonder the monsters who are running this business, how can they sleep at night after hearing the cry of the innocent ones? How can they look in the mirror after seeing the helpless eyes of the voiceless? How can they eat their bread knowing that the money with which they bought the bread is by killing the ones who have never harmed them? There is a saying “when the bird is alive they eat ants, but when birds die ants eat them”… I believe in KARMA. The ones who are doing this barbaric act will also suffer equally. And I pray and wish that day comes soon.

  6. If we were meant to wear fur, nature would have kept us in it. Being glamorous doesn’t rely on torture and death of innocent creatures.

  7. Thanks! You are actually helping humans as well. We all need to know about what’s going on in order to help others and eventually ourselves.

  8. I loved that poem. It made me cry and cry and cry, and my friends asked me why and I showed them and they cried too!!

  9. You would think history teaches us at least anything, but that’s so rare. A very deep post, thanks!
