I Cry


I Cry

I cry to see such dogs in despair
I cry to see such sadness in the air
I cry when I see a dog in pain
When does it end, when does goodness reign?

I cry to see a dog on a chain
I cry to see a dog in such pain
I cry to see a dog lost on being a stray
When does it end, what do you say?

I cry to see a dog stuck in a cage
I cry to see a human cause such rage
I cry to see neglect and abuse
When does it end, what is the use?

I cry to see a rescue come to aid
I cry to see happiness so much repaid
I cry to see a dog happy and glad
When does it start, when it makes you so mad.

I cry for those who don't deserve this
I cry for those who so seem to miss
I cry for those who help and care
When does it start, when you dare.

So what does it take, what does it seem
When someone cares, when someone deems
Enough is enough, show what you dream
When does it start, when you do what you mean.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
