I am a stray dog
Neglected
Left shivering on the sidewalk
Waiting
Just waiting
For someone
To give me a scratch behind my mangy ear

It’s difficult for me to trust though
When I’ve suffered so much
Abandonment
Living in places
That were only
Temporary

I cannot tell
The people that drift by
That I will be a good dog
That all I want to be
Is loved

All they do
Is just look into my sad, glossy eyes
With cold expressions
Not even considering
Helping me find
A home
