Not Alone

   Strong graceful wolf
   Lone howl in the night
   A chilly wind; the crunch of my feet
   Blood rising to my face
   Frozen and lonely; desolate.

One Last

   One last glance from golden eyes,
   One last song, a howling cry.
   One last wolf stands here alone,
   One last forest that he owned.
   One last breath that he drew,
   One last thought as if he knew.
   One last run through his forest trails,
   One last night as the silver moon pales.
   One last chance to save and give,
   One last hope to help live.
   One last fight and daring try,
   One last glance from golden eyes.

Straight Through our Hearts

   Miles in the sky it seems
   The lone wolf looks over his world
   encompassed by darkness
   Lit only by the cresent moon
   One would wonder what passes
   Through his mind
   Only he knows
   Would it be a game of deception
   Or could it possibly be
   Only looking for prey
   Could it be that he is sad for us
   When he sees what we are doing
   To ourselves and his own
   Maybe
   What makes his passioned cries
   Pierce our very souls
   Is it mearly to attract others or
   Do we feel the pain of knowing
   With every wolf cry
   Because of us
   Many things die

Sky's Song

My home is at W.O.L.F.,
yet it should not be.
I'm cared for and loved here,
but long to be free.
The humans who made me
not knowing what they do
did not understand me
or what I'm inclined to do.
My spirit is wild,
not to be contained,
to run free, to play free
to live my life naturally.

If You Look ...

If you look and find sorrow,
- it is because I sorrow.
   For brothers and sisters lost...
   For children slaughtered...
   For mothers and fathers gone forever from my life...
If you look and find anger,
- it is because I am angry.
   For brothers and sisters lost...
   For children slaughtered...
   For mothers and fathers gone forever from my life...
If you look an find confusion,
- it is because I am confused.
   For brothers and sisters lost...
   For children slaughtered...
   For mothers and fathers gone forever from my life...
If you look and find wisdom,
- it is because I am wise.
   For brothers and sisters lost...
   For children slaughtered...
   For mothers and fathers gone forever from my life...
If you look and find yourself,
- it is because we are not so different.
   We've lost brothers and sisters lost...
   We've lost our children...
   We've lost our mothers and fathers...
If you look and find your soul,
- then carry me home inside of you.

Fear is Destruction

You can only stay, if you talk to me.
- I will talk with you, and you will know me.

If you choose to go without speaking with me,
- I cannot speak with you, and you will not come to know me.

If you do not know me, you will fear me,
- because I am different from you.

What you fear, you will destroy,
- in your mind, and in my body and spirit.

Search your soul for those first words.
- for if I am truly only another side of you,
- then you will destroy both of us.
