You told me this would all be gone soon
You told me this was just going to last a moment
Well, it didn’t.
This has been going on for what feels like forever
This never ending sickness swallowing us
The only light is a small torch that gets brighter every day
The darkness has shrunk, but we are still here
You told me that this would be over soon.
You told me lies
Walking into a world so unlike my own
Birds singing, squirrels balancing on tree tops to grab nuts for their family
I do not blend in with this life, this growth, my sad gray fur, my lonely howl
I am wolf
