A Wolf's Point of View
A wolf's point of view: I am Wolf. I am as old as
the mountains I call home. I have walked this
earth long before human beings. I have seen
mountains grow from small hills, valleys form
from small ravines and rivers born of trickling
streams. I have walked with the great ones of
eons ago, the Great Mammoth, Saber Tooth
Tigers and many others who have long been lost...
I have seen the beginning of mankind....
I am Wolf. I am a predator. A hunter. I hunt for
food. I do not collect trophies to be mounted on
the walls of my den. I do not hunt for enjoyment
but out of necessity..for survival. I hunt to feed
my children...so they can one day walk upon
Mother Earth and become part of the Circle of Life.
I am Wolf. I have watched for many years my
hunting grounds diminish...trees replaced by
buildings....game replaced by humans. I have
been driven higher and higher into the mountains
....yet the humans still come....and I'm driven
even farther from the hunting grounds of my
fathers father and his fathers before him.
Yet I survive. My children survive.
I am Wolf. I am a loyal, devoted and loving parent.
Our children are our future..just as human children
are the future of all human beings. I am protective
of my children and take my responsibility of their
nurturing as seriously as any human parent.
I provide food for my children and provide them
with a safe home until they are ready to walk
their own path.
I am Wolf. I do not choose to hunt in the
presence of humans, but I have been given no
other choice. My land has been taken from me,
and now so shall my life....and the lives of my
children and in doing so..our future is doomed...
we will go the way of the old ones....only in
memories of distant pasts shall we live again.....
I am Wolf. Wolves are beauty without vanity....
innocence without naivety...
We are one of the Creators children..and deserve
to live our lives in peace....we were created for a
purpose....and it was not to be hunted down
I am Wolf. Tonight I will lay and sleep beside my
mate and our children.... This may be the last
night we will share together upon Mother Earth...
for tomorrow many of our brothers and sisters will
be slaughtered and perhaps ourselves as well.....
our songs will be only a distant memory...fading
into the past.
The heart of a Wolf.........
