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.
