I close my eys and visualize my future, 

a future where I am taking care of animals, 

curing their injuries, making sure they are okay.


Dogs wagging their tails,

cats mewing from their cages, 

everything feeling and looking surreal,

except I know it can become true. 


My life revolves around helping animals, 

whether from an injury or a disease, 

I am helping them with the job I choose. 


Watching the relief in a pet owner

and the recuperation of the animal

will be something I will enjoy 

from my job. 


There will be times when an animal 

has to be put down, 

but I know that I will have to face the truth

and make a harsh decision. 


The job is not easy, 

but it is worth the effort,

the years of school and training, 

to be able to help animals in my own way.
