Call Of The Wild

This is a poem based on the book: Call Of The wild, written by Jack London. It is a real good book, and it inspired me to write this

Raised up a simple dog,
I passed from hands to hands.
And learned the law of club and fang,
It’s the law that life demands.

I ran along-side Huskies
and walked on frozen land.
In search of yellow metal,
That calls up mortal man.

I found my master murdered
Face down in the creek
And now I live in the wild
A place so full of peace…

I lay next to the nature
And listen to the sounds
I watch the Living food
that is moving all around

I hear the call, that echoes
Which stops me in my tracks
It’s a tantalizing music
To which I can not turn my back

I sense the pride within me
It’s yearning to break free.
I can hold back no longer
It’s time for me to leave.

I leap into a fury
And race into the wild
Running to my hearts content
Greedy like a child.

I don’t know I’m running,
But my instincts tell me to.
The call is so demanding
Like fish drawn to the blue.

Everything I ever need
Is here within this place,
Every meat I’d ever want,
And water is replaced.

I stand up high on mighty cliff
And howl to all that hear
So they will know that I’m alive
I rule this place here.

It’s the call of the wild
And the blood in my veins
That pushes me on forward
Throughout the endless rains

I am master of this place
And ruler of the land
I need not be wolf
Becouse I am who I am
