I am an escaped hamster.
I wonder if I will go home.
I hear my family calling out for me.
I see Nicholas and his dad trying to catch me and put me back in my cage.
I want to be free in this house.
I am a hamster with a sad story here.
I pretend I haven’t run away and that I am free in my home.
I feel like my family should know where I am.
I touch the pipe in the wall.
No one has touched it in a long time and it is rough and cold.
I worry I’ll have to go in a cage if someone finds me.
I cry because I am hungry and there is no food.
I am a scared hamster.
I understand I shouldn’t have run away.
I say, “I ran away because I want to be free!”
I dream to find an enormous bowl of grapes in the wall.
I try not to chew on the wires because they will electrocute me.
I hope my family finds me and lets me be free.
I am an escaped hamster who lives in the walls.
