I Am A Cat - Poem by Umar Hashmi

Dear human friends, I am a cat.
You can play with me but I play with a rat,
I am aunt of a lion, who lives in the forest,
your sweet home is my lovely nest,
I am humble, though many things I tremble,
but my nephew is not kind and humble,
during night I go to a pond in the park,
I catch fish, I can see in the dark,
a beloved pet, all over the world,
next to beauty after fish and bird,
I know you love my sweet little kitten,
but for him no mutton no chicken,
let him grow on the milk that I feed,
but her mother is in too much need!

(Dear Seniors, I am a grandson of Akhtar Jawad, I wrote a poem, my grandfather revised it and advised me to submit it at poemhunter.com. I expect encouragement from you all)

    Young mind is shining with effective creativity to express the theme of natural chain. A cat can see in the dark as cat has very sharp vision and realizes love well. This is a very fantastic and expressive poem on animal theme. I wish you all the best to write more and more new poems when you are getting free time out of your studies. I wish you too to have a bright future and perform excellent in studies. Again I am rating 10 for you. (Report) Reply
