9 LIVES

9 LIVES

One day, in the life of…the world beneath my feet shook at an extreme decibel, and it rattled my posture. The truth of the matter is I tumbled. For just a split second I wasn’t sure; and that area of grey cost me dearly. There was no escaping the dues.
.
Blinded by the F.O.G., yet I chose to continue. To proceed, also meant to endure: the scrapes, the bumps as well as my most crafty nemesis; his name is embarrassment.
.
Somehow, with the assistance of time, the sun peeked through and there I was; standing on all fours. My prowl is more prance-like now, I’m jammin’. By allowing myself to be enhanced, I too, inherited a form of stealth. (The Crimson River has acquired a silent flow, yet, it’s movement all the same.)
.
Precisely agile, plus aware of the overcrowding of the land; I intuitively perch upon a sacred tree; Family. I naturally lower my eyes to that distinct line of precision. My people watching; their comings and going; their cadence and character; Is most entertaining. People forget that I’m a cat at my core, so the change isn’t as sudden as it may appear. Time revealed opportunity for usage of other aspects of myself; additional characteristics. I didn’t force myself into the tree. I fit.
.
Ascending is a natural process owned by the daring, so I do exactly that; Ascend. From the (one) I can see why the (two) is necessary, and it’s this perception that enhances the element of my prowl. All the time, do I hold 9 in m.i.n.d.
.
Atop the tree, my tail curls then sways; when I touch the land again, it will be as LION.
