Flowers by themselves
bloom without trying or care
They are all in tune
To grow strong within nature
How else could we truly be?

The cat owns nothing
he’s the solitary one
who owns all of you
The Egyptians worshipped him
the silent watcher of souls

Tell me what is home?
Corners full of possessions
Or rooms filled with love.
