Not Choice But Circumstance

 

I’m not your average kitten,

not a domesticated cat,

not by choice but circumstance

is what has seen to that.

I’ve had a life that’s pretty tough,

out here on this street,

with very little comfort

and a lack of food to eat.

But I still crave affection

to soothe the loneliness within;

I want to feel some stroking

to my fur and to my skin.

I’ve learnt to be so wary

and although I know I must,

I find it hard to go near you,

I find it hard to trust.

But now I’ve let you near me

I find I have a purr;

your hand it reaches out to me

and rubs against my fur.
