Old Days

Katie McGinnis / Kearney, Nebraska / Age 12


As I walk upon the earth,
I stop in wonder.
There I see a standing wolf,
Eyes fixed upon the moon.
He speaks of the old days,
When man worked with them,
With each other, hand in hand.
But as they broke apart,
Each direction lead to a door,
A door with love, a door with life.
They step through them,
And so that brings us to today,
When we watch them sing their song.
They try to tell us what we are,
And that we are all the same.
Deep down, in every heart,
We are all animals.
