The Lion Sleeps Tonight [Poem]

Updated on September 20, 2017

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.

Which animal reflects your personality?

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

      "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.
