I found this and many other poems on the Internet and I believe that this message says it all, far too many wonderful, beautiful animals continue to be neglected. The priceless unconditional love that they have to give is cast aside; their need for companionship denied them, how can they possibly understand …they cannot. Please raise your voice for those who continue to suffer so greatly.
I wish someone could tell me
What it is that I’ve done wrong,
Why I have to stay chained up
And left alone so long.
They seemed so glad to have me
When I came here as a pup.
There were so many things we’d do
While I was growing up.
They couldn’t wait to train me
As companion and as friend.
They told me they would never fear
Being left alone again.
The children said they’d feed me,
Said they’d brush me every day,
They’d play with me and walk me,
If only I could stay.
But now the family hasn’t time.
They often say I shed.
They wont allow me in the house,
Not even to be fed.
The children never walk me.
They always say, “Not Now!”
I wish that I could please them.
Won’t someone tell me how?
All I have is love, you see,
I wish they would explain,
Why they said they wanted me
Then left me on a chain.
