The lion sleeps tonight [Poem]

Have you ever seen lions

while they're sleeping?

They show all their weakness,

tired of being strong everyday.

Their frightful roaring

changes into a deep breathing,

so harmless

that you could stroke their mane.

Lions, while they're sleeping,

aren't fearful anymore.

"tired of being strong everyday" that was a amzing thought. It seemed you could see this world reality. We are tired of being what we are sometime. Great Lorenzo27.

You can stroke their manes. I'll watch from the truck.

We have an expression: "Leave a sleeping dog lie", same with a lion: leave him alone!
