I am By Maeve Coughlan

I am a free child who loves cats.

I wonder if there are cats on Planet X.
I hear soft steps through the forest,
I see a leopard and her cubs climbing in the trees.
I wish I could feel their soft fur, and play with them.
I am a free child who loves cats.


I pretend I am a cat with invisible wings.
I feel the wind on my soft fur.
I touch a blaze of rainbow light,
I am afraid that I am near the end of the universe.
I ask myself what it would look like if there was one.
I am a free child who loves cats.


I understand that some people are against cats,
though I believe that many of those people were cats once.
I dream that I am a panther in the jungle.
I trust that sometime I will be able to fly to planet X.
I hope to discover cat language
I am a free child who loves cats.
