Going Home

Written by: Lori Hopkins

Here I lay on cold concrete 
No more grass beneath my feet
Want to leave but don't know how
Oh sweet family
Where are you now?
Here I am alone and scared
For this I was not prepared
A man came to take my new friend away
Where did he take her?
For a walk?
Out to play?
Here I am all alone
Miss my family
Miss my home
Oh, wait...that man has come for me
Oh that's good I have to pee
I try to never go inside
I did once and tried to hide
but my humans found me out 
and began to stomp and shout
Is that why they brought me here?
Is that why I'm so alone?
Will they come for me?
Is it time to go home?
