I saw a rabbit sitting in the cold and bare
just laying in the bitter air
his red eyes shinned in the snow
a shiver ran up his spine and twiched his nose
I looked in his red eyes
he told me without speaking he was going to die
I was suddenly overwelmed with surprise
as I swore I saw the rabbit cry
I slowly pulled back the trigger and let the bullet go
and the rabbit no longer felt the cold

This writing is strong, and understanding to a degree, as it is…Excellent in the fact this reader felt it too. “A tear slid from my eye”… Although, in it there is just not enough information for me to decide whether or not the choice made was truly an act of mercy. Although thank you for sharing.
