Can you teach an old dog new tricks
More than chasing balls
Or chewing up sticks
Everyday brings something new
So what do you think 
It will teach you
Will you learn to love or to hate
Will you give your heart or will you wait
Hold on to your past or let it go
Will you wag your tail or tuck it low
If this old dog could learn one thing today
teach me kindness to those
who come my way
Without barking or barring of teeth
But a wagging tail for those I meet

    So many thruths hides between these lines. I like the poetic spin you give to this piece. Very well done.

    Loved the metaporic write. This old dog has learned a few new tricks, so I do not think it is ever to late.
