I know

You left me amid a pack of wolves,
snarling, baring their teeth...
closing in on me.
I know they'll tear me apart.

As the night grows darker, colder,
I hear their menacing howls,
and I realize I'm all alone.

I know tonight's my last night.

I search all around for you,
call to you for help,
all the while knowing you won't come.

I know you can't.

But, I fight back
I fight the wolves with all I've got,
and I emerged the winner.

Now, I know I'll live another night.

Many times we rely on others to help us out of trouble, but there comes a time when we have to fend for ourselves...that's when we realize that we are strong and able. Your expressive words show that you too have this capability. // paul

A day will come for each of us when we have to face this world alone. But, we are stronger than we realize, and as long as we fight, we will survive. I really enjoyed your poem, Angie. A great write! Very expressive!
