No One Loves a Pit Bull
The blood dripped down my ears,
All you did was scream for more
There were shouts and cheers.
I didn’t notice. All I wanted to do was please you.
You shoved me into walls,
Whipped me with a belt.
But I love you regardless of the brawls.
I do and always will do anything for you.
Every night I sleep on the cold, reddened floor,
I don’t even cry for you anymore—you never come.
My scars and gashes aren’t worth my cries anymore.
But I still love you, I still just want to please you.
You said, “Fight. Fight for me.”
And of course I did,
I fought my hardest, I swear I did, but you didn’t agree.
What did I do wrong, Master? Everything I do is for you.
You are my everything, though the feeling isn’t shared.
You never stop hitting and spitting at me.
I live my life constantly scared.
But I always try. Who do I strive to make happy? Of course, you.
One day a woman invaded during my fight.
She took you and your friends away,
But I think I finally saw the light.
The woman told me she’d save me. She said who’d hurt me was you.
She put me in a cage, bigger than the one you gave.
She fed me and made sure I was okay.
I found what it meant to not be a slave.
No more blood, no more cuts. No more you.
People passed me, I got no attention.
They said to me, “You’re the devil. You’ll kill my whole family.”
And so I was put in suspension.
No one wanted to love me, But all I wanted to do was love someone other than you.
That one woman took me into the doctors one morning.
She began to cry, and stroked my fur.
“You’re a good soul.” She’d said as she started mourning.
I didn’t know why, she saved me from you!
The lady slid something sharp into my arm.
A purple liquid swished inside of the sharp needle.
She’d said, “It’s okay, baby. Where you’re going there’ll be no more harm.”
I was so confused. Was she talking about you?
My head felt weird
As I closed my eyes.
“You’re a loving Pit Bull. Nothing’s wrong with you. The world shouldn’t be feared.”
Except, I only feared you.
She told me that this was your fault.
She said she was sorry.
All her talking finally came to a halt.
I fell asleep. Forever.
Now I look down from the skies I never got to see,
I never got to love another person, no one gave me a chance.
They all just walked past in disgust. I just wanted someone to love me.
But no one loves a Pit Bull.
No one loves the dog that’s accused of treason.
No one loves the dog that would do anything to please.
No one loves the dog that has a horrible reputation for no reason.
No one loves such a loyal breed.
No one loves me.
