This work has reached the exceptional level
poem about a family member .


by tempeste

No family of my own
just sickly homeless
cats and kittens
I found in distress.

Born in dark allies
with little to eat.
Ignored by most
in fear they'd retreat.

Unwanted souls
hoping for a chance
a loving glance
a change in circumstance.

I offered a roof
a gentle hand 'n food
and now they are
my happy brood.

No more hardships.
Each with its unique personality
yet all for one and one for all
in this new blissful reality.
