What Is Going To Happen To Us?

So today evening I was walking, and a black cat walked across in front of me. Nothing unusual, so I continued walking, therefore crossing the path of a black cat. This is supposed to be a bad omen in loads of places. A superstition. I don't believe in these, at all. But a young boy, around the age of 5 or 6, yelled and ran towards me, stopped me and screamed, "You shouldn't have done that, that's bad!"

So I wanted to clear the air on this. 

The actual origins of the black cat crossing your path superstition is a bit of a mystery, but there are a few ideas. Cat’s ability to move silently and practically undetected put some people on edge, and their association with Egyptian religion added to the uneasiness in some Christian cultures. From here it was said that cats- and black cats in particular- acted as “familiars” to witches, creatures that are imbibed with an evil, otherworldly sentience that give power to their master.

P.S: Guess what happens when I write a poem for my Mom..... I get to eat her amazing home-made brownie and vanilla ice-cream and a lovely comment which ends with calling me a potato! Moms are the best, so go do something nice for your Mom and tell me what happens by commenting down below :) (POEM FOR MY MOM)
