poem challenge: Inside Cat

No More

No more life as an inside cat.
No more being stuck in this house.
No more having to watch through the window. 
Time to escape to the life of an outside cat.
No more easy life.
No more constantly eating bland cat food.
No more letting myself be picked up by small, grubby hands all day long.
Time to run out.
No more doubts.
No more not trusting this choice.
No more trying to pretend I love this.
Time to leave this behind.
No more second thoughts.
No more time debating this choice.
No more time stuck in the maze of indecision.
Time to be an outdoor cat.
I can still come home. 
I can still love my humans.
I can still sleep in this soft bed.
But I can't never leave it.
