A letter to mankind

I wrote this too. Although i think it might be a little cliched.
Enjoy~

You reap the fruits of the Earth,
leaving us to starve.
You cut down the trees,
ruining our habitats,
to build luxurious homes for yourselves,
spas and resorts to unwind,
and casinos for entertainment.
All in the name of modernisation.

You kill us for our fur,
be it striped, be it polka dotted.
You kill us for our hide,
to make handbags and shoes.
All in the name of fashion.

Oh, but you won't stop!
You take my bile,
you take his paws,
and you take her tusks.
Because you say they are of medicinal values.

Have you ever stopped to think about us,
to hear our pleas and our cries,
are you so blinded by wealth and the riches life has to offer,
that you fail to see our sufferings?

We were created by God too,
but you were given the ability to think,
we counted on you to protect our species,
we counted on you,
the creatures we call Homo sapiens.

We have long suffered in silence,
and now we are writing this to you,
asking,
'what have we done to deserve this?'
