UNTITLED FROM CREATIVEWRITINGFORKIDS

Homeless Dog Poem

I feel cold and freshly abandoned,

My heart is aching more and more as I walk along the streets of confusion

Lightning strikes down on the road

Rain is pounding down on my matted fur

My stomach lets out a hungry grumble

Cars whizzing past me strike terror into me

I am a stray

-Pearl B, age 11

    Awww….sad…sniff sniff. Makes me feel SO good that Bailey is a rescue, though 🙂

    Not sure if ‘Like’ is the right way to express it, but what a powerful piece of writing and to see such empathy in a kid is beautiful.
