Defenseless

A poem by Katie Gabrielle

Sweet child
Of the Streets Of Greece
Will Your Savior Give You Peace
Will You Wander
To And Fro
Sweet Baby Kitty
Where will you Go?
Backed in a Corner
Defenseless
Eyes full of fear
And Woe
Don't forget who loves you
There are little angels
For kitties and little wanders
Protecting You from danger
Look into my eyes, kind stranger
Help me make it through today
And maybe I can find tomorrow
Without tears, fear or sorrow.
Find a home for me
Away from the streets of Greece
Lost in the darkness
Help me find the light of day
Defenseless in every way...

He doesn't look so much scared as accusing and just a bit condescending- "what in the world do you think you're doing?" He's got all of his cat-regalness about him. Love the blur effect around him, though; really draws the eye towards that adorable little cat!

Oh, the little cat is a darling. <3 I love the way you shot this - the blur focusing on the cat really gives that 'predator scoping' feel. Kind of makes the viewer feel like they're attacking the defenseless kitty. :(

Sad, Nice, reminds of something mean my step-mom said,it was "Why don't they just take all the stray cats and dogs and feed to the homeless children in the other countries," I was like oooookay, that was a little weird,

Poor skinny baby! Does Greece have any kind of animal shelters where you can take such lost little souls?

Such a nice picture ans poem. I visited Greece last summer. It was kinda painful trip cause as a big cat lover I would have wanted to save every single street cat that passed by me. [link]

Gorgeous photo, but.... to me, little kitty looks sort of mean! Before reading the poem, I thought the title was meant as an irony!! :-)
