A Spirit So Free
Author: Catyrose


A captivating creature often misunderstood
Our misconceptions, they say he must defend
A free spirit borne of the gentleness of the wind
Gaze behind those frightened eyes
What is it that you see?
Nature’s regal creation longing to live as he was meant to be
Ever wild and free
Or a savage beast that must be caged behind bars or destroyed
To alleviate ill found fears
Such tragic misapprehensions move me to tears
Few understand his mischievous ways
Failing to see the love and respect he often displays
Mortals they treat him with disdain
More often than not, considered a disgrace
Yet his heart overflows with loyalty and love
Gifts bestowed from the celestial realms high above
He loved to frolic and run
Before man caged him in attempts to tame
A spirit so wild and free
I often wonder why don’t they see?
Are men so blind?
To the nature of this creature and his spirit so kind
Gazing into his yellow eyes, I see keen intelligence
Others react out of fear borne of ignorance
I love to stand high up in the hills
Observing my friend as he runs wild and free
Such a glorious sight to behold
The beautiful grey wolf he is my friend
If only you’d take the time to understand
You’d finally be able to see
Nature intended for us to live together in peace and harmony
