Sammy Rescue Cat

Updated on April 29, 2017

Sammy Rescue Cat

now i see you

a lot like me

battle-scarred

and weary

hanging on

hanging on


so much to give

slapped back

each time i’ve tried

hardened emotions

when was the last time

i cried?


fighting

with who i really am

the soft guy

and the scared guy

clashing again

and again


fighting

to stop fighting

how else to let go?

can’t let go of trying

should try

to let go

      You let it go very well, my friend...The cat has found a safe harbor, now, with you I'm sure...You will find that safe harbor too, its probably just around the corner, waiting for you to recognize it...It takes a strong and confident man to share these thoughts...Thank you, Larry

      Very rarely do I read poems about pets! Good poem Russ. Great human vs. nature poem. You got a beautiful looking tabby there my friend. Hope he sees your good intentions. Thanks for the poem.
