My first life was of opening eyes as a kittenish child in growing.

The second consisted so much of tiny unheard sighs.

The third was mostly discovering the ways of meek mice.

My forth was in understanding why they are absurd.

The fifth found me rather lazy and quite boring.

The sixth was filled with endless alleyways of wandering.

My seventh was a yowling cry of night calling out to home.

The eight was short and I knew then that life is fleeting.

It was in the nineth that I smiled as I died,

Passing into tomorrow in wonderment and greeting.
