So, I’ll give you some background before I start this poem.
When I was a little kid, I thought wolves howled at the moon. Most kids think that, but it caused me to find my obsession with wolves that I still have to this day. I’ve had it since I was 2 years old. It might have been sooner. I obviously don’t remember anymore.
I always used to howl at the moon from around age 2-6. It’s been a long running joke in the family for me.
Even so, I’ve found a way to think of it in a deeper light than just a child being themselves. Hopefully that can be viewed through this poem. It’s not going to be edited at all, but I hope it gets my point across.
If it does, someone help me give the poem a name. That’s the hardest part for me. I don’t know why. Either way, enjoy.
When I was a little kid,
I thought things differently.
I thought life was easy.
I thought parents were perfect.
I thought wolves howled at the moon.
I thought I would always have the same friends.
I’m still young, but not that young.
I now know everyone makes mistakes.
Wolves only want to talk to each other now.
I know that friends will leave, new ones will come.
I know those are obscure facts to think about.
Animals are my obsession.
That’s one thing that hasn’t changed.
It’s nice to have a safe topic to discuss.
I know that’s not just me that thinks this way.
Wolves have always been my favorite.
That hasn’t changed still.
It’s a nice idea to have that,
I know I’m not an adult yet,
but I’m pretty close.
That depends on who you ask.
Is 18, 21 or 40 a real adult?
I don’t know.
I turn 18 in under 3 months.
Weird isn’t it?
It’s weird to go from
a child who can’t talk at all
to someone whose almost done.
I’m almost done with regular school.
I don’t know if that’s good or bad, but it’s soon.
This is all I know about my age.
I have much more to learn still.
That’s the most important fact to remember.
That might be my own opinion, but think about it.
Thank you for listening to that poem. I don’t know how much sense it made. I wrote it on the spot. If you have any advice on how to make it better. Let me know. Thanks for any comments, likes, or advice.
