PART OF THE PACK

Written by: Adriana Galainena

I joined the Human Race
I joined the pack
No longer, defending odd ones
No longer, preventing attacks
Survival, has molded a sculpture of stone
Faceless, unformed, yet uniform
Yesterday, a strange one joined our group
Ostracized, picked on, well chiseled form
From afar
I studied this artwork
I saw some good points 
I saw some bad points
Typical human, but not part of our pack
In her absence, we tore her apart
A prey for hungry wolves cornered and trapped
And I, defender of the human race,
Walked away with a morsel from the kill
In my haste, I tasted blood
An accessory to gossip, we all shared in part
More like murder, when I noticed
In my mouth, I carried her heart.
