The Cutest Family

Cutest Family

I just saw the cutest family of six all black with a white stripe under their belly. they were crossing the road In front of traffic. To my delight there were five little puppies following mommy. Some were keeping close behind and some were wandering about running to catch up

I wondered why the car in front of me stopped, now I know, those five little pups 
Coming across the highway
tagging mommy as she lead them home surely placed a smile on my face and happiness in my heart thereby, prompting me to pullover to the McDonald to write this poem about a cute family

Mommy dog didn't seemed concern whether she and her babies' fate would be like that of many countless animals that die each day crossing roads. not once did mommy look back to see if her offsprings were still following, instead she pushed on, with her head low to the ground making her way home

With eyes glued to this cute family, the car in front of me drove slowly by as its passengers watched them walked out of sight. Me too followed behind driving just a slow watching this clueless family walked on out of sight not knowing the kindness that allowed them to walk home safely. 

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
Just had to stop and write this and post
Editing stage: 


I wonder how often WE are allowed to go forward due to unknown grace allowed..............stan

i don't know but is glad that it is there
