Heavy Southern Rock song: To Tame A Wolf; with ZZ Top - La Grange.

Creative Writing may elicit much good from the souls of man.

In composing this song, I imagined it being set to a heavy southern rock style of say, for instance the main body of, ZZ Top - La Grange, or similar music.

The message may be applied to a love interest, in the most traditional sense (a gentleman seeking the heart of a lady), or by extension and perhaps extrapolation, even a nation seeking the liberation of a repressed people.

This is one manner Poetry [as part of the Creative Writing genre] and the Arts can make people THINK, if they can wholly discover the appreciation of it, in its many simple humanistic and more complex abstract forms.

Then, as an interconnected people, we may be able to see that we are a wonderful and awesome creation, with an enormous potential that cries out for freedom, to be untapped, yea, and be truly harnessed (in its intended sense).

Ultimately, we can each empower our own resources, strengthen our own character, and manage our own society in an inclusive, yet RESPONSIBLE (with a capital R) and ACCOUNTABLE (with a capital A) way - noting the difference between responsibility and being accountable for our OWN (with a capital O) responsibility.

But for now, let’s just enjoy the melody that a suitable love interest may naturally elicit from our souls …

Heavy Sourthern Rock song

To Tame a Wolf

To tame a wolf

One must first see

Through her eyes

To a certain degree …

ZZ Top, La Grange

Be close to her heart

And relate to her moods

Study the signs

Of her brood …

Take notice of pose

Record all her play

Discover a pattern

Unfold through the days

Do not rival her range

Or threaten her space

Be firm in conviction

Manage your place

Through patience and time

You’ll uncover the things

Her wild heart loves

And friendship brings

Adventure may forge

A trust to be built

(A bond rife with paradox and pun)

While fierce is her might

When loyalty calls

The songs that she sings are a plea ...

To Tame A Wolf

Is to cage her spirit

But respect and no doors sets her free

If you love someone [people], set them free!

Should not the liberated remember the benefactor in good esteem?

  • Yes. I believe the one(s) set free ought to think of their benefactor(s) fondly.
  • No. The benefactor obviously has an ulterior motive.
  • Why should they? The benefactor was just doing what they wanted to do.

I like how you weaved the ultimate conclusion through the poem - very nice.

Thank you Alexander for your concise comment. I believe the same general conclusion can be said for people too (and really, that's what it was about).
