Little wolf

Do not fear little wolf.

I see your power, cunning, and wit.

The world backs away cautiously

Anticipating your sharp bite and ferocity.

And I respect this is possible from you.

Do not fear little wolf

I know you are more than this.

Living a life more complex

Than anyone gives you credit for.

Softness hidden out of necessity.

And isn’t it funny,

The expression “wolf in sheep’s clothing”

Inherently suggesting we are all

One or the other.

Do not fear little wolf

I know that you hold power and softness

In a delicate balance.

You are more than what the world thinks of you.

You know what they say…

I know I don’t look like much.
Almost like one gentle touch
would break a bone.
And I know you’re worried I might break.
As if one blow is all it’d take
to make me fall to pieces.
I see that everyone is doubting me.
Living with an ideology
that small things are not powerful.

You know what they say about assumptions.
Watch me conquer your presumptions
and then laugh at you.

You big asshole.
