I normally write poems. I read a story recently about an elephant that had been in chains for years and finally was rescued by a group of people who
cared. I wrote this little story based off that, just made it my own.
The elephant fought hard against the chains.. They were digging in deep causing blood to trickle down his feet. It hurt so bad but he wanted to be
free. He could feel the chains tightening. He didn't know how long but it sure had been since he was young. His mother was shot down just so those
awful men could strip her tusks.
He focused again on pulling as hard as he could. He tried to step forward but the chains were so short, he couldn't. Frustrated and so angry about
everything he finally broke one chain off his foot. Oh the relief he felt. Now one more to go.
He could hear his master shouting. He wasn't sure if he had heard the chain break so he had to act fast. He used all his might and the other chain
broke. Now run!! He ran through the gate busting it down. He heard yelling but he didn't care. He wanted to be free.
He ran and ran and ran. The voices faded and soon it was just the noises of the night. He wept with a softness. He couldn't believe he finally had
broken the chains. Freedom was gonna be difficult but he would rather face that challenge than live in the restrains of misery.
This is Raju.
Elephants are my favorite animal. They hold a certain beauty of magnitude and I love it.
Thanks for reading
