Stray

Mangled and muddied, a limp could be seen
spat on and bullied, so many mean
 
scrounging for morsels, head hung to the ground  
cast out of comfort, no love to be found  
  
meanders the path, near a slow moving stream  
asking for sunshine in yesterday's dream
  
caught in reflection, for who is this cat  
obviously ugly, mangy, and fat  
   
eyes that are lost, no purpose, no soul  
sadly surrendered, hardened he strolls  
 
cries echo the night, empty meadows he roams  
searching for daisies and a place to call home
