A cat with one eye
knows a thing or two
about taking chances.
How did she lose her eye in the first place?
Did she know she had nine lives to begin with?
Was that the last chance she took?
It’s allowed her to see that much more
Taught her to adapt that much more
Helped her to appreciate that much more.
It had to.
She’s the ruler of her realm.
It may not be the vast and vulnerable world she once roamed—
that world she gave her eye to
This realm may be
but a three season porch—
She keeps her eye on it,
And on the door.
Every now and again,
she escapes to explore.
That’s the thing about taking chances.
