I look at all the caged animals...the cast-offs
of human society.
I saw in their eyes love and hope,fear and dread,
sadness and betrayal.
And I was angry.
"God",I said,This is terrible! Why don't you do something?
God was silent for a moment, then He spoke softly.
I have done something,He replied. " I created you"
Now I lay me down to rest,
I pray my soul can stand this test
Of watching critters lose their homes,
While owners gripe and cry and moan.
I long for strength of spirit and
I pray they'll find a home again.
Where they will know a loving heart
I can't do much, but its a start..
And spare me from the owner's pleas
About the baby's allergies,
Or how they're moving out of state
Or spitefulness 'tween cat and mate.
Please keep me sane while dealing with,
The woman who bought as a gift
A wriggling tiny ball of fluff
That now is playing way too rough.
Remind me I should bite my lip
When confronted with "he grew too quick".
"I didn't know he'd get so large",
"He seems to think that he's in charge".
Protect my heart when I hear them say,
"I think we'll breed our dog one day".
Sometimes I think it'll break in two;
Each day brings trials harsh and new.
And if I die before I wake
I pray one hopeless soul you'll take.
My tears are gone, my faith is bare
Lord, please hear my rescue prayer.
