Proud Of It


My first cat was a kitten that I found at the end of the block.
I brought it home.
Mom told me to take it back.
Knock on the closest door.
They said it belonged to them.
I knew then that they weren't a good family.
I walked home.
Not happy.
Kept looking back.
It was a long block.
All I know is my Mom gave in.
She took me to get a cat that week.
It's been a steady intake ever since.
It was meant to be.
If there's a stray, I feed it.
I take it in if it needs a home.
I donate if I can't.
Starts at a young age.
Proud of it.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
