Poem: Grabbing Life

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Grabbing life is a poem about how watching kittys put on a cartoon show can teach one to grab life by the horns.

They leap and pounce, running through the house enjoying each moment.

Just like the kitty cats we can seize each moment and choose to live with happiness.

Grab life by the horns and make each day happy.

"Jerry Williams - Grab Life"



Grabbing Life

Tiny fur balls

put on a cartoon show

leaping about the floor,

filling the room with laughter

to begin the day.

Pouncing their little paws

as they run through the house

playing catch and chase

happily, as they stop

to bat a catnip mouse.

Teaching us life can be simple

if we seize the moment without a cluttered mind,

grabbing life by the horns

making good choices for our day.

"Rodney Atkins - Take A Back Road
