The mouths we feed

are just not those

of our families,

our friends,

or neighbors,

It’s also

the trees,

the grass,

the ocean,

the earth

every animal

every insect

and the air we breath

Each part of is

connected to the rest

when one dies

it all dies

That includes us

It’s not just you

or me

it’s all of them too

Help make the world a better place

think about everything you do

and how it affects all of us

and all of them too.
