You think to yourself,
“What am I doing in the forest?”
Then you hear a malicious snarl,
Turn your head and scan the vicinity around you,
Spot in the distance a hungry pack of wolves,

Begin to bolt to escape them,
Sprinting as fast as your feet will take you,
Nearing your home which will save you,
The wolves closing in fast,

You reach the door and turn the knob,
Your entrance to freedom is locked,
You hastily search for a bridge to safety,
There is a mass of keys on your chain,

You fear for the worst and turn around,
The wolves only feet from you, begin to leap,
Then you scream and jolt awake fast,
You were always asleep.

-Hedley, Old School

Yes I wrote it and I had to write this lyric poem for school.  The poem is supposed to be based off of a line or few lines of a song lyric.

Favorite Quote:
You've gotta take the good with the bad, smile when you're sad, love what you got and remember what you had. Always forgive but never forget, learn from your mistakes but never regret. People change and things go wrong but always remember life goes on

that was awesome! :)  Did you write it?  I'm confused by what you mean when you say it's inspired by old school.
