    Nine Lives

    It took a cat's lifetime
    to give me a voice
    that could speak my truths,

    and it will take you the other eight
    to figure out how to silence me.

    I have no intentions of hiding in your offered shadows
    when I could bask in my own sunlight,

    freedom in the feline way
    as I walk my path,

    conquering new heights
    while you remain rooted to the unforgiving ground,
    watching me soar.
