If An Abused Dog Could Speak... - Poem by chantelle ribeiro

Chained and chaffed
It hurts, Master!
Why do you glare at me?
Do I not love you unconditionally?
Why leave me alone?
I am hungry and dizzy from the sun
Please bring me water!
Have I done something wrong?
I never asked you to choose me
I thought you wanted me all along!
But I was glad you did
I miss the warmth of your arms
I was only a little pup then
but you loved me didn't you?
You made me love you too!
And now I look up at the sky
I want to be that butterfly
I do not understand
the harsh words
the burning pain from your hand
I am your friend
I am loyal until the end
So here I have to remain
But in my eyes you'll see my pain
