Lone Wolf

brown wolf


He never hesitated…
he just put himself down


For the joy of others…
he wore that toxic gown


He became the riot shield
when his companions got shelled


They just never knew the burdens
his simple heart held


He fed his soul
with the laughter of others


He tore himself to pieces,
just to build up his brothers


Teaching hard lessons
the only way he knew how


Never let his guard down,
nor ever,

did he bow


Commanded respect,

Straight-up soldier


He acted on instincts

Never needed closure


Choosing a path of sternness,
a path of dedication


Opting for the hope of tomorrow,
instead of today’s gratification


Abiding by the code,
a life structured by discipline


There’s surely something profound
beneath those eyes of cinnamon


Believing in the youth,
believing in the future


Left no stone unturned,
left nothing to conjecture


He made peace with the idea
of being hated


To unite a pack of wolves…
a new bond he created


His aspirations devoid of

being part of “the pack”


Or even summoning those wolves

to have his back

black wolf on green grass

He is indeed content

watching them smiling from a distance


And you will never find him grieving

due to the plight of his existence


Coz nothing brings people closer
than one who is mutually despised


Who could ever fathom,
this crazy plan he devised?


You surely won’t see his wisdom…
at least not anytime soon


So await his death…
for only then shall you swoon


Sure it was love…
but in its ugliest form


When we think back we will realise…
“He was actually warm!!!”


And when he passes on,
Don’t dare fabricate a story…


of your endless endeavours
to bring him to glory


Rather remain silent,
don’t dare attempt to lie…


about your never-ending efforts
to cut him a piece of the pie


And when we contemplate,
I hope we don’t regret it


I wonder why we all have to die before we get it?

  1. To lone wolf’s sacrifices, if only… they knew
    they’d say to him “this world isn’t meant for someone as beautiful as you”

    Wonderful poem loved the power packed emotions and the depth of your thoughts. Keep weaving the magic of your words!

    1. Thanks for stopping by on my blog & taking the time to read this piece. I appreciate your feedback. This poem is indeed a tribute to the special people (Lone Wolves), who don’t necessarily get any recognition. Their value is sadly only appreciated in hindsight.
