A wolf story

The journey was rough, the road was long
Her withered face radiated, turned in song
Still she fought, her faith was strong
She had no power, but she knew they were wrong

She turned her face towards the breeze
She heard them shout, she didn’t dare to breathe
Opening her mind, she sent a silent message to the sky
Please, dear god, don’t let me die

Before they reached, her creaky tree
Something made them turn and flee
Climbing out to have a peak
No hero, no human did she seek 

But on the waters edge she heard a growl
A lone wolf was on the prowl
Thank you, she whispered bowing to the ground
But the wolf if it heard, gave no sound

Off it stalked, in between the winding tree
No one she told, no one would believe
Everyday she would thank the grace,
For her saviour with a different face.

    Congratulaions on getting your poem featured! I really like the flow of your poem. The rhyming of your poem does not sound monotonous and I love that about your poem.

    Fascinating--Great work-- check 'peak' in 3rd stanza--I think you meant PEEK.

    This is lovely, Crystal, a lot of depth. Would love to read a re-write with more poignant syllables replacing words like "the", "a", "it", "to", "was", "were", etc.

    i really like it because for one it is left unread except for me and it was beautiful. to be unheard when you so need and want to be heard so bad is a shame. there r so many poets out there that just need to be listen to. to understand what it feels like to not be noticed for there own poems. i for one am one of those people that will listen to the ones no one else believes in. because i to am one of those people that no one hears.
