there are days i
want to run with wolves.

to howl at the stars because
the moon has never done
anything for me, and swallow roses
like their thorns never
existed.

but this cage -
it seems there's no way
out,
and i fear it's
too
deep
down
for anyone to hear me.

life is just a zoo full of
all our monsters, and
[it's our fault] we
can't stop
feeding them.
I don't have much to say anymore.

Don't feed them.

I am not a zookeeper, reason why? They don't get paid well enough.

I don't think you understand what this poem has done for me. This very may well have changed my life seeing as writing is such a huge part of it. You seem to have opened an entire new branch of writing for me. I have never really understood inspiration or expire emceed it at this level untill now. Thank you

There was this one story I read somewhere on the internet that had a Native American grandfather and his grandson in the woods camping. The Grandfather tells his grandson that two wolves live inside everyone. One is good and one is evil, then the grandson asks "Which one wins?" The grandfather replies, "The one you feed."

This really reminds me of that but the last part really stood out, I loved that.
