The wolf inside is weak and frail, his Pack is distant and far, his fur and skin are matted and mangy.
His howl once full of Joy and Power is brought low, Painful and Angry.
The wind; cold and bitter,
pushes the wolf into Darkness of winter.
The Birds circle and mock, giving chase for their moment of feasting.
His heart cries buried inside, racing and beating.
The wolf must rise to withstand the night; to rise and make war with all his might.
The wolf must rise to give pursuit of his Kin, if left to the birds, in his Heart they will roost.
Arise the Wolf inside to continue the Path ahead,
but, as the season comes, so does the challenge in his head.
For the Wolf that is wise endure he must, for it will not all return back to Dust.
To Rise and give chase for the prize of his Heart.
The Wolf will rise to battle this dark.
The Wolf alone, thinks he is,
but within sight, the Leader comes to finish the Promise He said, is His.
Rise up the Wolf Inside.
