The lion

imagesitting on my perch

the same perch where I first saw this lion

timid, gentle, soft, loving

so incredibly strong

I could feel it. I could smell it

i saw the lion battling these traits

for he sees them as weak

run away and pretend they don’t exist

show them what a true lion you are

show them your strength

puff up your lion chest

mask what lives beneath

protect the beautiful pulsating love that pumps through your heart

keep it safe

do what a strong lion must do to survive

protect what is sacred

and that’s how I knew that my senses can be trusted

for I feel warm

i feel safe

when I was on my perch

and the lion was near
