The Spirit Animal

As the lithe form walked in the wood .
A little deer did all but stood.
As the deer's senses came alert.
The form stopped upon the dirt.
Using the shadows as a hood.

As the deer bent to eat .
The deers mom began to bleat.
As the deer walked to the sound.
The form stalked close to the ground.
Thinking off this meaty treat.

As the two deer met.
The ground was slick and wet.
Both heads shot up to watch.
The form’s body just a gray blotch.
What happened next the little deer won’t forget.

The form jumped onto the doe.
Coming from down low.
The little fawns fear was fresh.
The little deer ran into the brush.
At his mother's death show.

As the doe’s body fell.
The wolf let out a howling yell.
And through the wood came to light.
Five little pups came into the night.

This poem was inspired by this online test about spiret animal and when I got my results this was exactly like me, so much that I decided to let the world know in a poem. I hope this inspires people to let the world know who they are and what they are like and not be afraid of what they are like because there are people who are like you to.
