I hold breath fear and hope fighting legs want to run but hungry belly says stay.

She puts out hand and I cringe for the hurting blow cringe but hungry belly says stay.

Hand touches head and I feel fear in the fingers not hurting so I stop cringing and I say with eyes and ears—not bite dog only has hungry belly.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
