Understanding

The trees stood strong like massive unmovable pillars,




sunlight rained like golden droplets through the trees,




the forest is filled with din,





I could sense life,




leaves rustled,


everything had a rhythm,



even if I didn’t see life I felt it,





I know I should’ve turned back right there,




but I felt at ease here in this enchanted place,




I wandered aimlessly for hours,




then I was lost,




I drifted in circles,




I stumbled into a space,




the sun was just falling into the treetops,




it’s last rays streaming through the massive trunks,




I didn’t know what to do,





while I was crying,




I felt a presence spying,




I looked up and I stopped,




while I stood with my face ashen,




a wolf stood there,




what will I do?





will this be my end?





tales of girls in red hoods and three pigs bashed at my head,





I didn’t move I barely breathed,




we both stood there as if captured in a spell,




the wolf stood there piercing my soul without it’s gaze faltering,



it stood like a statue,




it’s magnificent form was solid,




it was clearly filled with unmovable pride,




the sun outlined the beast in a golden radiance,




it backed away and slowly pointed it’s face in a direction,



I had a feeling it was showing me the way back,





I inched away and went the way I was shown,




as I walked back I felt it’s eyes never leave my back,





now I had an understanding of this feared animal.

Some use its instead of it's. In your case, you use it's instead of its.

Anyway, this poem is so true. Sometimes, the ones who are called idiots are the ones who really know what's happening... :)
