Why do you hassle
me so
Why do you kill
my kin
Why do you
fear us
Hunt our kind
again and again

I mean you
no harm
I wish only
to live in peace
To be left
To live wild
and free

But time and
again you track us
Hunt and kill
our kind
Never a moment
we can be free
It doesn’t matter
where we hide

I am life
the protector of all
The guardian
of all I survey
But nothing prepared
us for you
Our former friend
now your prey

I am Wolf
I am life
Hear my howl
For it may
be my last
where human shadows
