I lay upon this shelter floor, its my last night
I know for sure.
All I ever wanted was to be loved, instead here
I was dumped.
I didn't win the important fight, now I am alone
and full of fright.
There are others here just like me, I cry for us
until I no longer see.
Deisl, Max and even Percy, won't be given any
The floor is hard as it is cold, my only wish was for
a chance to grow old.
I dream of a family this night, wondering what it feels
like to be held tight.
The lights have all come on, and a woman with sad eyes
takes me to a white room.
She says " Im sorry boy, but now you cant be hurt any more", and sheds a tear as she shuts the door.
I see this is breaking her heart, and she seems very anxious
I try to tell her thank you with my eyes, as the needle slides in I hear her soft cries.
My tail thumps against the table a few times, now I know I comitted no crimes.
With my last breath comes much needed peace, and I am greeted by others like me.
Even the old pitt that I fought, nuzzled me and looked
happy I thought.
Its NOT our nature to be cruel and mean, to love and bring smiles is our dream.
Punish the deed and not the breed, There are some that love us so please follow that lead.
Fight BSL, and send those who hurt us to live in a prison cell
I own a pitt bull, and I am an active rescuer in my local pit group. But I fought for 6 months for my boy Valor. He was only 8 months old and was used as a bait dog to train other pits to fight. They said he was dangerous, I dare anyone to look at him now and say that. Pits cant fight this battle for themselves, so its up to us that can to fight for them!
This is so powerful and intense, you are obviously a very talented and gifted writer, wonderuf poem, I loved how you write it, I can't wait to read more of your poems, you put so much emotons and heart into this, it really spoke to me and ran into my heart!!
This was written as an eye opener. Not all pits have someone who will fight so hard to save them. 90% get put down. I tried to write from the dogs stand point. thats all. Thank you for reading ande being nice enough to leave a comment.
