A Vegetarian

I find myself saying "why do people eat animals?"

I find people telling me "you're vegatarian, why that has no benifit, the animal is already dead"

I find others also stating "you're not even helping the enivorment"

I know one person isnt doing much change to the world

I know I may never do an impact that's ovious. 

But the thing that I know that is true, is that im doing somethimg I belive thats right and at the end of the day, thats what matters.

I wonder why people take it offensive that I dont eat meat. 

I wonder why people think its weird that I eat a plant-based diet rather than meat.

But what I think is weird is taking an animals life away just to eat it.
