Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

23 Mar

“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.” ~Matthew 7:15

Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

I see a wolf dressed as a sheep
He’s preying on the ones who sleep
He uses all of the right verbs
Like “love” but something still disturbs

He talks about empowerment
But on him, I can smell the scent
Of ego still in full control
This wolf does not speak from his soul

It’s from his mouth that he does speak
And all he does is just critique
He chimes in to say how you’re wrong
How his way is so much more strong

He speaks and speaks and rambles on
And slowly, I see ego spawn
I see him vent when others choose
To not give credence to his views

I see him vent and vent some more
I see the ego get quite sore
I see a man who can’t let go
Who does not let emotions flow

In time he shows his true intentions
He’s driven by credit and mentions
He wants people to take notice
To be fawned over like a lotus

The sheep’s clothing now starts to tear
Which leaves the wolf exposed and bare
Eventually we all reveal
Everything we do conceal

Eventually it will be known
Why this wolf likes to drone and drone
It is because he hates the thing
He is but to ego does cling

He tries to pretend he is one
Of few who is with ego done
But surest sign he is untrue
Is that he will always pursue

He will attack, he won’t relent
And won’t miss a chance to comment
He’s all about himself and soon
The other sheep will know his tune

    This picture is classic. I have found that what you say resonates with me but today it sounds like a gong ringing out loud. The disguise can be so convincing or am I just too gullible.

      Trust and faith are never something to be ashamed of. It’s the people who take advantage of it for their own personal gain that garner all of the shame.
      Thanks for reading, glad it resonated.
      Peace & grace,

    Miro, you certainly have wonderful discernment about human character! They are certainlyl not able to fool you with their prancing and costuming! I love the way you can tell ANY story, write any set of truths, so poetically! Your rhymes and rhythms somehow make the message sink in deeper. I just shared your last post, about Dennis, on my Facebook timeline! Bless you and your lovely wife, my dear warrior.

      Thanks Granbee, gratitude. I love to turn my topics of discussion in to songs with rhythm and flow. I believe we overcomplicate things far too often, and seeing them in poetic/musical form reverts them back to what we know they actually are; simple issues that are not as complicated and chaotic as the mind/ego would initially lead us to believe. And some of them can be quite fun.
      Have a wonderful weekend!
      Peace & grace,

    Wonderful image to go with wonderful poem. Sometimes it’s realy difficult to know the real person inside the skin of lamb before it’s too late.
