The Wolf Is the Gift

Life and DeathPoetry

Change is the biggest
Baddest
Wolf

Change is the thing
That leads you
In a different direction

Change is inevitable
The inevitability of change
Is what's scary

Once your path is clear
You know where you're headed
And what you’ve been through

The biggest,
Baddest
Wolf
Blocks the clearest road

However
Change doesn’t have to be
Bigger
Badder
Or scary

To me

Change becomes a gift
Standing in your path
Showing you
The clearer way
Isn’t the right one
