those who mind don\'t matter and those who matter don\'t mind

The Wolf walks alone
all on His own
He sticks to His guns
because He's got no one
For a pack there is no need
to live His life alone's His creed
The hunt, the chase, the meal, the day
one more is survived alone is the only way
No family, no friends
no need to pretend
that anything else matters
The Lone Wolf is alone again

He makes himself alone
that's what happens
and He will stay alone
until God knows when
Don't try to connect with Him
put space in between
please leave Him be
He prefers not to be seen
When He skips out
it's only His way
He doesn't want anybody
to be with Him today

He likes to be alone
the packs not his style
they discomfort the wolf
because in His heart He's wild
He's a loner now
quiet and frustrated
but the heart longs for freedom
before His spirit turns jaded
One day soon
the Wolf will move on
from crying at the moon
those days will be gone

The Lone Wolf is not a lone wolf at all
He just doesn't let it show
but if He follows natures call
He'll finally just go
it could all get left behind
If He would leave it all
the Lone Wolf may find
He can be what he wants
He can grow wings
He can fly
He can fly away from everything
If He just grew wings

The Lone Wolf
learning to be Himself
growing His wings
without any help
Now He is content
and life more fulfilled
With no one's consent
He has His very own will
like a bird He can fly
to the future and bright skies
He didn't even say good bye
because now He values His time

Nobody has convinced the Wolf
that He should be alone
because like the Tree of Life
the Lone Wolf is grown
But now He's not a wolf
He is a Free Bird
and He can fly at His own will
but He never knew until
The Lone Wolf became a Free Bird
like nobody ever heard
and after the trouble, in the end
He may finally find a friend

This about how we grow as people, and waiting for the chance to become who you want to be.

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

I love this! It's great! I love the meaning, and it's also relateable and inspirational! Nice job! :)

I love the message that the "wolf" has seperated from his pack which allows him to become his own person... or bird i guess lol good job.
