A poem for a rescue dog

inktuition rescue pup

You were an abandoned child,

left to fend for yourself,

not knowing what you’d done wrong.

Cruelty hurts your emotional health.

You were scooped up and saved,

given a safe home and a place

until someone picked you for theirs.

Kindness softens your sense of disgrace.

Your round, pleading eyes

pull compassionate strings in my heart,

so up you eagerly jump on my lap.

Love feeds you a chunk of my tart.
