A Cat isn't just a Cat

You don't look like you have ADHD?

What sort of nonsense is that?

Do I look like a doctor?

Do I look like an artist?

Do I look like a mother?

Or do I just look a prat?

I can be all of the above and none of the above.

I can be all the above and more.

What about you?

You don't look small minded.

You don't look ignorant.

But you sure as fuck sound it.

I get it. You want to be able to identify from a distance.

If I saw a cat from a distance

I'd want to know too

If it was a house cat or a lion,

One will scratch and bite

The other would take my life

Think of us as the lion;

you hear us from a distance,

You see us lying about,

But you wouldn't call a lion lazy would you?

Cos that's when he'd rip your throat out.

Don't underestimate what you don't understand.

We don't play your games

Not because we can't

But because if we did

You wouldn't stand a chance.

Who am I?

Why is my worth weighed in the voices of others? Why is my progress measured in the approval of peers? Why do I feel like an imposter in the shadow of my own achievements? Why when I celebrate myself,
