Black Sheep

from The Remnant Mass by Cetus



shepherd minding his flock by the sound
blind — forced to see with his weathered hands
and always at heel is a black sheep
who grazes, but never too far
who stays close to keep warm as the man sleeps
the sheep rests, but awake with the stars
the shepherd rests with his faith in the black sheep

ever alert of a wolf on the land
the sheep rests but awake with the stars
all sight needs light

the only eyes of this sightless shepherd
the only friend of this lonesome shepherd

a starless night without the black sheep’s sight
when the wolves tore his flock to red
all that he knew were the wolves well fed
anger and vengeance the black sheep receives
although undeserved

with loyalty the black sheep accepts it
humility for love of this old man
with loyalty the black sheep accepts it
submissiveness until the end
