The Lioness

The air is chilled and thin
The daunt shadows muster in
The hidden history so bleak
Often held close by the meek

One rises to the task at hand
To tackle the cruelness of man
To right the wrongs for those
Who haven't the means to do so.

Strengths gathered from fears
Valiance comes forth from tears
Cleanse the dastardly hold
of those who acted so cold.

A Champion for the tormented
A saviour who has lamented
A warrior woman so brave
Her family she had to save.

Loving caring and filled with kindness
Protecting her pride like a lioness
Be gone , Be gone you evil foes
And that is how the story goes.

You have held the pride together
And they will not ever wander
The strength of you and your kindness
Forever they are protected by the lioness.

LOL, thanks for the advertising!

You already know how much I like this one. As a mother, I like to think of myself as a fierce lioness, protecting my cubs. Great analogy!

Thanks, hoot, but I can't take the credit for this one...it belongs to Startin_Fresh.
