Would You Send Me An Angel?
Lost in this dark place,
hoping for a miracle,
struggling to be safe..
As I sat with my legs close to my chest..
it burned, the air what I forced into my chest burnt,
its pain searing throughout my chest..
Here I am, I screamed
looking up to sky,
would you send me an angel, I asked..
I scoured daily for food,
scampering like a rat running wild.
a belly filled with garbage was killing my body..
the streets had hardened me,
I’m a warrior inside a body of a skeleton.
I’m hidden from the eyes of the world as no one notices me.
I am one of the thousands
that calls the sidewalks our home.
but no one sees us as normal beings..
once again, here I am, I shouted
looking up to the sky.
could you send me to an angel, this time, again, to God I asked,.
now as my fur begins to drop,
and my throat becomes dry.
I sit in a corner and weep
as no angel had come to shed my misery..
they say cats got nine lives,
but I didn’t even get to enjoy living one.
I hope, unlike me, the rest of my species are able to live,
live and be able to be free..
