Poodle (Toy) (Listen while you read)
I do need love and care and someone to share my life.
(I’m not a strong little puppy; no, I’m not a strong little puppy; I’ll have you know. I do feel sometimes that I missed out on some ‘inner strength’; yes, I do. I feel that someone got my share of that quality that makes one strong and resilient and happy. Oh, not that I’m unhappy; no, just that I know I need the love and care of others to feel strong. I wish this weren’t so. I wish I had enough strength myself to cope with all of the things that the world throws at me; but I don’t. No, I don’t. Many a time I will feel the earth revolving, you know! Yes, I will feel the earth revolving and I wish, sometimes I wish that I could ‘jump off’. Yeah I know; sad isn’t it! And when I wish for this I do try to remember to be grateful for everything that I have but; it doesn’t always work, you know. No, it doesn’t always work.)
