“Seven lives wouldn’t be enough...”
to undo their mistakes
because they are inerasable
and repeated in a pattern
like the stripes of a cat.
to know yourself.
Our soul shows itself in endless facades
like there would be no end,
just as in a ball
for getting happy with yourself.
You can’t always fall on your legs
because life lessons are needed
and those begin
with getting up.
to escape from your bad conscience
because it would chase you like the
prey the predator
into a life of insecurity.
to learn how to avoid hurting others.
Although we aren’t cats
and do not own the seven lives of
them we do
have the claws of an animal.
Still I would rather be a human
because in that one precious life
I would be able to dream
can’t even dream about that,
and I could even dream seven flawless lives
and the world could wait...
