Her voice


I have a voice 

Yet all you hear is a nuisance 

Sometimes you see cuteness

In those moments I am a doll


More often I experience fear

Your fear

Aggression

Even hatred


For the innocent like me

It’s not safe 

Where I live

On the street


But I am here 

Because of mistakes

Yours

Not mine


Poem and pencil sketch by Sarah Clarke 2021

Dedicated to all the street dogs of Bahrain
