    "Baby Seals Cry." Author: Stardust. (4-13-2008)

    Listen now to these words, for my tears will sour...
    Today and at this hour, somewhere in the North Pole,
    A trail of blood is left on the ice floes,
    As baby seals cry for their moms with their rhyming souls.

    I cry aloud to the Lord writing my words out.
    My heart bleeds drifting heartaches in the mist,
    When I´m watching the dying baby seals.
    This cruel practice must soon end.
    With pain and blood shed, I shall never deal.

    The Humanitarian Society of the U.S. is doing its best
    To protect endangered species on this Earth.
    Living beings have their rights to live.
    Conservation is the main key in giving birth.

    I do not understand why humans kill.
    To save the world, Lord, I say my prayers.
    I lie my living words on Your feet, if You care.
    Please, change the world for the better,
    For this inner pain, I -no longer- bear.

    If you still love to listen to the serenade of seal pups at dawn,
    With the wrinkled sea beneath the early sun;
    If you still love to see them alive crawling in the snow,
    These white furry friendly pups are just like warm cotton balls.
    You can certainly make a difference in their young lives...
    Let us join together to save them!! Let us all make the calls!!

    Oh, Lord!! Hear my heartbeats for the baby seals!!
    I believe in the power of Your love,
    It indeed, unfolds before my eyes.
    I´ll soar like an eagle, for Your Spirit leads me on,
    To reach Your heart where I truly belong.

    Author: Stardust. (Story- Poem) (4-13-2008):thankyou::thankyou:
    I ask and pray to the Lord that, the baby seals´slaughter should stop forever.

    Not sure how we missed this one from way back when, Starry. Very poignant and heart wrenching... whatever became of this issue?

    There are certain countries that have problems with seals because they eat all the fish in the area and it affect the sardine manufacturing. So it's a matter of the seals eating them or humans eating them? I'm not sure if this is regarding that or if people are eating seals... hopefully not.

    Interesting. I've never heard of a seal meal and I'm quite the foody LOL
    I would think that seals wouldn't make a very tasty meal, sardines on the other hand... I like 'em - but shhhh, don't tell anyone LOL - I suppose if it's a fight of the fittest or some such, I root for me 'cause I don't like the concept of a seal eating all me sardines. A seal playing with a beach ball though is all good though. :p

    So Ms. Starry - what inspired you to write this piece waaaay back in 2008?

    HI DEAR FRIENDS, MS. JACQUII AND NOMAD,

    WELL, IT IS AN INTERESTING DEBATE ABOUT SEALS WORLDWIDE...
    YOU HAVE ASKED INTERESTING QUESTIONS AS WELL, MY DEAR FRIENDS.
    I MAY SAY THAT I WROTE THIS POEM A FEW YEARS BACK, BECAUSE OF
    THE CRUEL BABY SEAL HUNT IN CANADA FOR THEIR FUR, NOT FOR THEIR MEAT.
    THESE PEOPLE WITH CRUEL PRACTICES ARE KILLING THE POOR BABY SEALS
    JUST TO GET THEIR FUR. THEY SKINNED THEM WHILE THEY ARE STILL ALIVE.
    IT MUST BE REALLY PAINFUL FOR THE BABY SEALS TO DIE IN THAT HORRIBLE WAY.
    HOW DREADFUL AND HORRIBLE!! I DO NOT USE REAL FUR IN MY CLOTHING.
    I WARM UP MYSELF WITH AVERAGE FABRICS OR NYLON JACKETS.
    I AM A CONSERVATIONIST AND PROTECTIONIST OF OUR NATURAL ENVIRONMENT.
    THE HUMANE SOCIETY INTERNATIONAL IS DOING ITS BEST TO PROTECT
    BABY SEALS. HOWEVER, THAT IS NOT ALL...
    THERE ARE SOME COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD THAT EAT HORSES, DOGS, CATS,
    SCORPIONS, AUNTS, ROACHES AND SO ON... YOU NAME IT...(((THAT IS VERY SAD!!)))
    I AM TRULY HAPPY TO BE PART OF JPIC FORUM FOR POETS AND WRITERS!!
    THANK YOU SO MUCH, MS. JACQUII AND NOMAD TO REPLY TO MY POEM!!
    I LOVE YOU ALL WITH A FRIENDSHIP HEART.
    BY THE WAY, I AM AN ANIMAL LOVER AND ANIMAL'S ADVOCATE AS WELL.
    GOD MAY BLESS YOU ALL, MY DEAR FRIENDS!!
    UNTIL WE WRITE AGAIN.
    POET STARRY.:kiss2::kiss2::kiss2:

    Gee, I never knew that they used the fur from baby seals? It doesn't seem all that furry does it? I guess people will do anything to make a buck... what a waste!

    Wow - Such a waste indeed.. I had no idea people use baby seals for fur - that just seems insane to me - who would wear what I'd consider a "skin" suit? hmmm - I suppose it's another type of "leather"? IDK - but that's weird. Poor baby seals :(

    Thank you, dear Ms. Jacquii and Nomad for your quick reply!!
    Well, I let you know that I joined The Humane Society of the United States and its branch, The Humane Society International, many years ago. They keep sending me Weekly Newsletters with all the last News about ANIMALS WORLDWIDE, and what people do to ruin and doom their beautiful lives.
    You have no idea the kind of UNDERCOVERED RAW VIDEOS they send me with horrible and dreadful scenes of the killings and mass slaughters of precious animals, and the way they suffer...
    I always sign the pledge to protect the animals in need. I am an ANIMAL LOVER and
    AN ANIMALS' ADVOCATE. I am also a CONSERVATIONIST OF OUR NATURAL ENVIRONMENT.
    I am also an ADVOCATE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS as well, for example for women and children who
    are VICTIMS OF CRUELTY, ABUSE, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE and so on...
    Have you watched the video with Jackie Evancho singing a pledge to save the baby seals??
    She is a child, an 11 year-old Soprano Singer. It will be great news when baby seals will be
    safe forever. We -folks who love them- are their voice. (((I STAND FOR LIFE!!)))
    I write songs about my own point of views towards the protection of life in our planet.
    I wish I could make a real difference with my little share of loving care one day in the future.
    May God bless you and keep you, and may His light shine upon you always, my dear friends
    at JPIC Forums for Poets and Writers!!
    I send you all my loving on your way,
    Starry.
