Hi my name is Kiarah Hamilton and I am 11 years old. Just as the Lorax spoke for the trees, I speak for the beautiful living creatures. I love animals and I am saddened because of what is happening around us. I was inspired to write this poem because people are oblivious to the suffering happening to the animals. People don't see that they are a part of the reason that these animals are suffering. I don't believe that it is right to have these animals suffer. So when people read my poem I hope that you remember that if you change it will make a difference, and that you can speak for the animals.
