my eyes speak my truth

scared and lonely
unwanted

thrown out alongside the road
like trash

I was not good enough
a mutt

a man approaches

fear moves my legs
panic

sprinting away faster
faster

then my nose notices something new

food

he is carrying food

fear
weakens with hunger

I jump into his car
bribed with a hamburger

and he takes me somewhere I have never known

home
