leather snow home

a wolf for different reasons

when i was younger
i was a wolf
with bristled fur and gaping jaws

alone and full of hate

kept warm by rage
the anger always underneath
baring the claws and teeth
I wished I had

surviving in the harsh wastes
regardless of the cost

now i am a wolf for different reasons

i mourn the pack i never had
and desperately seek another
i want to work together
and help others to survive


i long to run in the woods
and never be seen again
