The Sheep

Written for:  Blogging From A to Z – “S”

Yes, I am a sheep
considered weak
by honoring my leader
who is truly esteemed.
I was born independent,
knowing how to defend
myself from illness,
I am quite intelligent.
We sheep have many friends
and feel great sadness when lives end.
If I am your animal spirit,
all requirements are met.
A peaceful life
and, if necessary, a sacrifice
to protect family
and enjoy harmony.
Yes, I am a sheep.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
