Soft As A Kitten ... Courage Of A Lion
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

It seems that things
are not always as they appear.
Cruel thoughts brushed away,
with only the slightest tear.

Seemingly a kitten in disguise.
A roaring lion I see ...
when I look in the mirror
that's what looks back at me.

So even the cruelest hearts
can hear the lion's roar ...
When cornered in my heart
I cry out no more.

I'd like to think this is
my 'other' personality.
The lion's courage to protect
the kitten in me.

I like this....I think it's kind of cute, though I don't think that was what was meant...The phrasing just sounded very cute to me.

Thinking is just what a great many people think they are doing when they are merely rearranging their predjudices.

I send you out as sheep among the wolves....or should it have been kittens among the dogs? Facing the hardships of this world requires that lion in us all...and the kitten at home to feed the love. Never ending surprises from you Marge
