I don't understand
Why they threw you away.
You have so much love
To fill up each day.

I guess they got tired
Of cleaning the hair
Off couches and tables
And their favorite chair.

Or maybe you just had
An accident or two.
That's when they decided
To get rid of you.

Whatever did happen
You're here behind bars.
At least here you're safe
From the big trucks and cars.

You're waiting and hoping
Your loved ones will hear
Your cries of distress
In a voice full of fear.

But they do not come
To save you you see
You will die in this cage
Never again to be free.

And all of the love
That you have there to share
Will never be known,
'Cause there's no one who cares.

This tears at the heart, I believe representing an unwanted pet thrown away. So sad that some people don't give value in animals. They get them as a trinket when they are small but get rid of them as they age. this is well written and I thank you for posting it.

Thank you for your comment regarding this poem. I wrote it after visiting our Humane Society. So many unwanted pets. It's so sad.
