Stray & Eggshell


I run!

Being chased by dogs, cars, and humans

I catch my breath,

Not trusting anybody or anything

I am afraid,

but I feel safer when the night is here

My food is scarce,

I eat what's left over in the trash

I meow alone.



I'm young,

A chick inside its eggshell

I haven't seen the world

But unlike the embryo

Emotions run up a storm

I've cried like a weeping willow and laughed like a laughing hyena

Been as angry as a mother hen protecting her young

And I've slept like a bear in hibernation

And even though I've been through a lot

I haven't yet broken through the shell
