My world has changed 

I see colour again

The black and white spell

Has crumbled at last 

His hand was extended 

With firmness it shook 

I steadied my gaze

And with surety

I stood.



I forgive him 

For the pain that broke my heart 

I forgive him 

For tearing my soul and life apart

I forgive him

For loving me and walking away

I forgive him

For using me for his good pleasure 

I forgive him 

For all that he has done and said

And I forgive myself too 

For lighting the fire 

Stoking the flame

Burning my fingers 

My hand 

My heart 

And going back 

For more 

More of the same

A Dog’s Purpose – Review

I’ve always thought dogs have been created to teach us love. Dogs are love. They only know unconditional love. They will always greet you with a wagging tail, will always forgive, are loyal, will keep you company. Dogs are wonderful.

So it was really heartwarming to see a movie dedicated to this specific topic. It turned out to be a few dog movies rolled into one, courtesy of a reincarnation thread running through the script. The reincarnation thread was a bit random, but I guess it was to fill a purpose. My thinking is to not overthink anything, and just enjoy it at face value. 

I enjoyed it. My eleven-year old did too. Her first comment when we left the cinema was, ‘Please can I get a dog, please?’. Perhaps that is the best review there can be!
