WHY WE HAVE PETS by Eva Andrew, 2016
There are some people in your life
Who don’t really care
About anything you have to say
The “safe” topics to talk about
Dwindle down to a paltry few
And you are at a loss.
Not really knowing how to
Regain your power.
The years passed so quickly
and you’ve forgotten whether
You ever did have power.
Before the Dementors took over.
Zapping your joy and your energy.
Not an easy power to regain
But you must.
One day at time.
Eliminating one Dementor at a time.
Loving yourself first again –
Then attracting others who enjoy
being with you and who care.
Being cherished rather that merely tolerated
This is why we need and have
Pets in our lives.
