Do you ever feel

like you are pulling at the end of your leash

like a dog

straining, stretching, pulling so hard that you choke

that you are dragging the rest of the world behind you

that the world collared you

that the world harnessed you

All you want to do is go free

have control of where you go

Inspired by a dog on a leash and glad that I’m not

  1. The thing about the dog that is on that leash – he cannot understand why he is not allowed to go at a faster pace – doesn’t the owner understand there are important things to sniff and investigate? He doesn’t realize that he is nearing a busy street. Sort of reminds me about my walk with God – I guess I’m glad sometimes that He holds onto that leash!
