The Call of Wild

The call of the wild is stronger to me,

louder and more alluring than I thought it would be. 

They covered my eyes and bound my feet, 

they left me alone for the forest to greet. 

I sat for days while the moss grew on me, 

I thought for days  of the forest that sought me. 

My legs went stiff and my skin turned gray.

Oh to be a mountain, I daily pray. 

A rolling stone, I never will be. 

Forever I sit, forget those who knew me. 

For I am part of the earth,  

my true mother from birth. 

The call of the wild is stronger to me 

louder and more alluring than I thought it would be

I fell for its call, as you clearly see,

For now the forest is a part of me.
