Prayer of a Stray Dear God please send me somebody who'll care! I'm tried of running, I'm sick with despair. My body is aching; it's so racked with pain, and dear God I pray as I run in the rain. That someone will love me and give me a home. A warm cosy bed and a big juicy bone. My last owner tied me all day in the yard sometimes with no water and God that was hard! So I chewed my leash God and I ran away to rummage in garbage and live as a stray. But now God I'm tired and hungry and cold. And I'm so afraid that I'll never grow old. They've chased me with sticks and hit me with stones while I run the streets just looking for bones! I'm not really bad God; please help if you can for I have become just a "victim of man! I'm wormy dear God and I'm ridden with fleas and all that I want is an owner to please! If you find one for me God, I'll try to be good And I won't chew their shoes, but I'll do as I should. I'll love them, protect them and try to obey when they tell me to sit, to lie down or to stay! I don't think I'll make it too long on my own Cause I'm getting so weak and I'm so all alone. Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry, Cause I'm so afraid God that I'm going to die! And I've got so much love and devotion to give that I should be given a new chance to live. So dear God please, please answer my prayer and Send me someone who will really care ... That is, dear God, if you're really there!
