Mother and Child... The love between them. and the sacrifices

For the Sake of Her Son

Mother and child they prowl through the night
Silently, agile
Searching for food, hunting with desire
Forever wanting to be together

She spots a prey
Eyes shining with hunger
She bares her teeth, ready for the flight

Her prey pricked its ears
Sensing something in the air
Stubborn, it refused to leave
Within moments, it came to an end

Together they feasted on it
Not noticing that they were soon to be preys themselves
She stopped her eating, sniffing the air
Rustles and growls could be heard

But it was too late
She ringed out her claws and growled
Her child unaware of the dangers
Then they appeared one by one
Five altogether with gleaming eyes

Their dark coats blending with the night
The mother recognized them
The mother knew them

If it was one on one
She might have succeeded
Alas, life isn’t fair
But for the sake of her son
She fought on

They tore at her beautiful coat
Still she fought on
They bit into her limbs
Still she fought on
The stench of her blood filled the air
But still, she fought on

Finally she gave in
Her heart stopped beating
Her lungs stopped working
For the sake of her child
She died.

The creatures dragged her off into the night
Leaving the child unguarded
He bound away quickly
Wanting to escape the clutches of the darkness
For he knew only death awaits him there

It was kill or be killed
The cycle of life
The cycle of the forest
But in his memories his mother is still there
Where she always will be

He will grow and become strong
And later, he will avenge his mother.

  Wow, the bound of mother and child is so very strong. It is amazing, the poem and the strength. If there was one thing I would change it would be this line "Her prey pricked its ears" It just seemed out of line........maybe the pray pricked it's ears.......

Anywho, it is a very unique and original piece. I really loved it I thought it was awesome. There were no distractions and the flow was just awesome!

Great write,
