No Gears

There are no gears beneath my fur, 
no wires 
no batteries 
no computer chips.

Underneath, I am made 
of muscles 
heart 
brain 
blood, 
the very same parts 
that you are made of.

I am not a machine 
but a living being 
with all the senses 
and feelings 
that life has given me

My muscles can ache 
my heart feel love 
my brain think 
my blood flow

If you touch me, 
I feel it. 
If you scold me, 
I hear it. 
If you love me, 
I know it.

Before you abuse me, 
run experiments, 
or use me as food, 
please remember 
that I can feel too.
