Animal Poems

I am speaking for all the animals of the world. We are here on this earth just like you are. God not only created you... he also created us. If you dont want us, then dont take us. We need love, kindness and pity just like you do. We also have a heart and we love unconditionally, not like you. We make no demands or tell you what you can or cannot do. The only thing we cant do is talk. All we have to do is look at you with our eyes then we know wheather we are loved or hated. We realy dont ask for all that much. Try to see us for what we are and not for what you can make us do. We are not your enemy. After all God put us here to be loved and cared for too. We, like you, deserve to be treated with love and kindness. Isn't that what were all here for? I would like to tell you also that you can never realy be our real master because God is. There is also a place in heaven for us as well as there is for you. We should all live in peace and forget our differences. Look after us and we will look after you. After all, a lot of love can go a long way. Can't you start thinking of us as your friend and protector? An animals love, like a child's love, is undying and that means you will never be betrayed in any way. Please take care of us and love us as much as we love you.
Thank You
Your Friends The Animals

Prayer of a Stray
Dear God please send me somebody who値l care! I知 tried of running, I知 sick with despair
My body is aching, it痴 so racked with pain, and dear God I pray as I run in the rain.
That someone will love me and give me a home. A warm cozy bed and a big juicy bone.
My last owner tied me all day in the yard Sometimes with no water and God that was hard!
So I chewed my leash God and I ran away To rummage in garbage and live as a stray.
But now God I知 tired and hungry and cold. And I知 so afraid that I値l never grow old.
They致e chased me with sticks and hit me with stones While I run the streets just looking for bones!
I知 not really bad God, please help if you can, For I have become just a victim of man!
I知 wormy dear God and I知 ridden with fleas and All that I want is an owner to please!
If you find one for me God, I値l try to be good And I won稚 chew their shoes, but I値l do as I should.
I値l love them, protect them and try to obey When they tell me to sit, to lie down or to stay!
I don稚 think I値l make it too long on my own, Cause I知 getting so weak and I知 so all along.
Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry, Cause I知 so afraid God, that I知 gonna to die!
And I致e got so much love and devotion to give, That I should be given a new chance to live.
So dear God please, please answer my prayer and Send me someone who will really care ...

Although I am too proud to beg, and may appear to be a very independent creature, I ask for your loving care and attention. I rely on you for my well being much more than you realize. This I promise you, my benefactor, that I will not be a burden on you nor will I demand more of you than you care to give.I will be a quiet peaceful island of serenity for you to gaze upon; a soft smoothing body to caress, and I shall purr with pleasure to rest your weary ears. Since I am a gormet who appreciates different taste sensations, I pray you will give me a variety of nutritious foods and fresh water daily. You know dear friend, how I love to go. Allow me, I pray, a warm sheltered place where I can rest peacefully and feel secure. If I am wounded in battle or suffering from disease, please tend to me gently, and see that am treated by loving and competent hands. Please protect me from inhuman humans who would hurt and torture me for their own amusement. I am accustomed to your gentle touch and am not always suspicious nor swift enough to avoid such malicious acts. In my later years when my senses fail me and my infirmities become to great to bear, allow me the comfort and dignity that I desire for my closing days and help me gently in my pain or passing. Hear this prayer, my dear friend, my fate depends on you.

A cat/kitten was put to sleep today,A beautiful animal that will no longer love, purr or get to play.It was sad right from the start,Knowing another cat/kitten died this way just broke my heart!There really is no need for any cat or kitten to die in this way,Alone, Unloved, Unwanted and pushed away.All this cat/kitten wanted was someone to help him play,To be loved and keep him healthy and happy in this way.All too sad, and much to my dismay,This won't be the only cat/kitten allowed to die this way or on this day,Unloved, Unwanted, Thrown away like a piece of trash! Don't be quick, and try to be rash,Please think this through and not in a flash! So won't you please, I beg of you...think things through,Before you make that decision of what to do! Please don't allow another cat/kitten to die in a way I can not condone, UNWANTED, UNLOVED, ABANDONED and ALL ALONE!

days into nights nights into days patiently I wait for someone anyone to like me
an array of people pass by looking petting talking to me I wait
I do my antics I strut my stuff I sit I stand chest puffed out I bark I purr I wait
I am homeless no family no master no love I wait
Patiently I wait for someone anyone to like me enough to love me and take me home
I dream I wait I am homeless. like me love me please I wait

Where did you come from, little cat? How did you end up in a life like that? Cold and alone Nowhere to turn Hungry and sick Tired and worn.
Did you once have a home, little cat? Where you curled up in a chair, lazy and fat? Happy and snug life was a charm Content and well-fed. Safe from all harm.
Did something go wrong, little cat? That you ended up in this state that you're at? Scared and so sore No one to trust Lonely and dying In a world so unjust.
Do you still have dreams, little cat? Can you still remember soft, gentle pats? Comfy and soft Nothing to fear. Sleepy and safe, Never a care.
Who will be there for you, little cat? Who will hug you and hold you close, little cat? Lonely and dying Cold and alone. No one to trust You once had a home.
Where did you come from, little cat?

Oh, what unhappy twist of fate Has brought you, homeless, to my gate? The gate where once another stood To beg for shelter, warmth, and food. For from that day I ceased to be The master of my destiny.
While he, with purr and velvet paw Became within my house, The Law He scratched the furniture and shed. And claimed the middle of my bed.
He ruled in arrogance and pride And the heart the day he died So if you really think, oh cat, I'd willingly relive all that Because you come, forlorn and thin Well...don't just stand there...come in

There is one best place to bury a dog. If you bury it in this spot, it will come to you when you call...come to you over the grim, dim frontiers of death, and down the well-remembered path, and to your side again. And though you call a dozen living dogs to heal, they shall not growl at it nor resent its coming...for it belongs there. People may scoff at you, who see no lightest blade of grass bent by its footfall, who hear no whimper, people who may never really have had a dog. Smile at them, for you shall know something that is hidden from them, and which is well worth the knowing. The one best place to bury a dog...is in the HEART of its master.

I wish someone would 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 a Companion and a friend. And told me how they'd never fear Being left alone again. The children said they'd feed me and Brush me every day. They'd play with me and walk me If I could only stay.
But now the family "Hasn't Time"; They often say I shed. They do not want 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 had, you see, was love. I wish they would explain. Why they said they wanted me, Then left me on a chain?

Don't close the door Don't push me away Why are you leaving? Don't make me stay.
Slow down the car I can't keep up This pavement is hot and my pads are cut.
I've got to quit running or my heart will pop Every muscle is aching why didn't you stop?
I'm so hungry and thirsty Darkness is near But I shouldn't leave He will come for me here.
Several weeks have passed I'm dead on my feet They call me a nuisance because I eat off the streets.
Every car that passes I chase it to see If it is my master coming for me.
Though I approach those that come near With trust in my eyes and no sign of fear
With hate in their voices and a cold, heartless stare They threaten to kill me They don't even care
Batter my body with rocks that they throw I will not leave He will come, don't you know?
Overtaken with weakness my body is numb I'm sick and so lonely Oh please, let him come!
I will go back to where he first threw me out I'll wait for him there He will come, no doubt.
My thoughts are fading My chest feels like lead I'm sleepy, so sleepy I can't lift my head.
It's so quiet, so peaceful all remains still There is my master at my home on the hill.
Yes, I can see him He's calling my name His voice is so gentle His hands are the same He decided he wants me Things will be fine I really do love him that master of mine.
My tail wags with pleasure, I can't catch my breath. He came in my dreams but so did my death.
