Meow

This piece I wrote a while ago, but I wanted to share it here as well. 

What could I learn from a cat?
How to prowl, growl, and climb
How to prance about, my tail held high
How to leap from countertop to couch

What could I learn from a cat?
The value of a well-placed nap
The fun in torturing the birds outside
The purring that begins at a touch

What could I learn from a cat?
Not to care what’s going on around me
Not to hold back from scratching people I don’t like
Not to mess with things that cause me pain

I could learn a lot from a cat.
