Hurried

20160102_222357

In the hurried frazzledness of life

The constant state of motion

Never stopping

Always going

I miss the sunrise

The sunset

The sun and wind against my skin

I am caught in the trap of living

Forgetting that I am in fact alive

Always moving

Always running

Afraid to stop

Afraid to feel

There is safety in movement

It’s time to be still

And to be again

Fallen- The Hounds

Another poem from the book of prose I am working on about Angels and Demons working together to wipe out the human race.

The Hounds

Dismissed and mistreated

The lost dogs of the world

Running wild and free

Scavengers

Mangy and dirty

A group of men huddled around a fire in an alley

Or under a by pass

Dismissed and mistreated

Lost souls of the world

Running wild and free

Scavengers

Mangy and dirty

It Happened Again Today

It happened again today.  A beautiful dog running towards me, dirty and mangy.  I stopped running.  He stopped running.  We locked eyes and walked past each other.  We kept walking and watched the other.  I stopped, he sat down.  We watched each other.  I was getting ready to slowly approach him and call a co-worker to help me take the dog to the shelter.  I started to move towards him and he turned around and ran off.  He knew the game.  Poor dog.  I cried.

Is there a stray animal problem where you live?

Here’s my cry, my rant.  These animals, dogs and cats.  Didn’t ask to be homeless.  We put them there.  I am not judging.  I’ve been there, broke, landlord doesn’t allow dogs or cats, the animal haa destroyed your home.  That doesn’t mean you put them out on the street.  They are dependent on you and now you expect them to care for themselves.  Do the right thing.  Its heart breaking, to give your animal to a shelter, another owner, but it’s the right thing.

Check out No Kill Animal Shelter, and they have a list of no kill shelters in the U.S.  .  You can also check out No Kill Nation, which advocates for no kill shelters.  If you are outside of the U.S.  or in the U.S. and have any resources please share and I will reblog this post with the resources.

Please share, reblog and comment.  Thank you for reading.
