I Lay My Care


Do you have a chance at them
A chance for a peep at animals
Just a glance in the land of animal love
As I do, I lay my care at them
In this house of dogs, birds, cattle and em goats........

Do you have a chance at them
A chance for their health
As I do, I lay my care at them
In the garden of love they eat

When sun rises to the east
I become a doctor, amother, a father
To them I am their loved god
And smile at my meats
And I smile at my protectors, my all
And I lay my endless care

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It was a request from my Cousin Shalon Mwatchawi who is in grade seven, for a school competition in poetry; and its theme was on domesticated animals, on how to take care of them. So here I am with this unexpected poem for her. I hope she will do better in her competition. Good luck cousy! !
