9 Lives: A Poem by Toni L.A. Clegg

My paws have found a brand new path

The road is dewy fresh

I look up at the rising sun

That bathes the hills in light

Its golden glow upon my face

Warms me through and through

I know not what will be ahead

I know not what is now

My past is dead yet part of me

A life I lived before

My paws have found a brand new path

The road behind me fades

I look back at the drifting mist

That cloaks the valleys low

Its hold upon my fragile heart

Loosens here and now

I know not what will be ahead

I only know I live

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
