Pets Add Life Poetry Contest! 4/7/2014

Back in January, Lynne talked Travis into submitting a poem for the “Pets Add Life” poetry contest.  The poem was for children between grades 3-8 and they were supposed to tell about the “joys and benefits of owning pets.”  After some coaxing and prodding, Travis set out to create his masterpiece.  Here is Travis’ poem:

 “Cisco”

One ear up

And one ear down,

I always love

Having you around.

You are a part of me

And I am a part of you.

You are the one

Who keeps me persevering through.

Whenever times are hard

You always keep me strong,

And ever since I got you

I knew I wasn’t wrong.

I know we’re brothers from different mothers

But my love for you is rife.

A human is just a human

Until a pet adds life.

Travis

(Brain Cancer Survivor)

Well, low and behold, we just found out that he won out of the 5th graders.  Wow!  Not only does Travis win a gift card, but he also earned a scholarship for his class to apply towards pet related education or supplies.  It goes to show, you never know until you try…
