The LUCKY DOG - A POEM

The LUCKY DOG
(Going from a FIXED to a
GROWTH MINDSET -
From HOMELESS to a HOME!)

Rescued from the streets
He learned many survival techniques
That won’t fly with peers possessing less chaotic skills
To get their needs met

After a period of normalization
Where EASE is introduced
Our friend stops devising ways to
Get his needs and preferences met
And, now has confidence and trust restored

Someone has LISTENED,
He is HEARD and TAKEN SERIOUSLY
He has become a PLAYER in the GAME
Someone that he respects
Has turned the tables on him
He is NOW respected, ALSO!

His life has been changed
He’s APPRECIATED and APPRECIATES
He has befriended his Goliath!
He’s able to stand ALONE (NOT lonely)
AND, he NOW KNOWs that 
The SKY IS THE LIMIT!
