Monsters

A friend sent me an article once, in which the first line read

“In Balakovo, Russia, two schoolboys tortured and killed three homeless kittens. They chopped off their paws to watch the kittens crawl…”

I burst into tears while reading and my heart has been broken ever since.
Overwhelmed with grief and appalled by the injustices of this world, I was determined to make it a better place for living creatures who most need protection and care.

Since then I have been volunteering for an animal welfare charity and have also provided a foster home for abandoned kittens, waiting for their forever families.

My song gives voice to the vulnerable and to share it with open and compassionate minds brings me comfort and hope.

Lyrics

In streets you lie,
Hungry and afraid.
You want to play,
But have no shelter from the rain.
You wouldn’t even recognise
That evil in their eyes.

Monsters,
Monsters,
Monsters,
Ruthless torturers.

So, tricked and framed.
I’m sorry I wasn’t there!
You tried to escape,
Crying in despair.
No-one could hear your call for help,
No reason for the pain!
Killing of you poor creatures
Is just for the pleasure of men.

Monsters,
Monsters,
Monsters,
Ruthless torturers.

In street you lay,
Hungry and afraid,
In so much pain
Suffered your last day.
How could those monsters put you through
That anguish in the end?
Fate’s so unjust to you.
Now run to the rainbow my friends!

Monsters,
Monsters,
Monsters,
Ruthless torturers.

Monsters,
Monsters,
Monsters,
Ruthless torturers.
