The Black Dog

In 2017 I lost my Dad suddenly & in all honesty I've struggled and miss him so much. I haven't talked as much as should & probably to the detriment of myself. But this post/blog isn't about me, it's about something I wrote this on Christmas Eve as the festive period kicked in & is my take on the Black Dog, who when off the lead can cause havoc.

The Black Dog..

The black dog isn't a pet who sits by your feet
And the black dog won't wait with wagging tail to greet

The black dog is vicious, unruly, unkind
The black dog growls away locked up in your mind

The black dog won't run for a stick or chew on a bone
And this menacing black dog won't leave you alone

The black dog has no emotion, loyalty or feeling
And with its brutal demeanour will leave you reeling

The black dog is a danger you don't want to meet
The black dog is strong but a beast you can beat

You can kick the black dog but I know it won't yelp
So to beat the black dog, please talk and seek help

I know it sounds simple but it can be so tough
When you break down and cry because you've just had enough

So the very first step that you will need
Is to get your black back on its lead

And remember these words as you go on your way
"itís ok to say if you donít feel ok"
