LIONESS

I am a lioness
I am rising with a roar
and I will shake you.

beach

I have no mane,
no mark of power
only the courage in my veins.

I hold my ground
I defend my pride.
on those who endanger, I bear down.

I am a lioness
I am feral; I am graceful.
I am full of beautiful, dangerous wild.

I am protector
I have not been reborn
only to be tamed and made small.

I am soft & fierce.
never one without the other
I am a force of healing and of power.

I am a lioness
I hold creation in my womb
and I will bear it.

I am unrelenting
I do not give up.
I do not crumble when the weight is heavy.

I carry my tribe
on the curve of my spine,
on the curve of my awakened learning.

I am a lioness
I carve trails in wasteland.
I lead my pride to safety and hope.

I pound the dust
with a powerful tread
and all the desert knows my steps.

I do not hide
I have no reason for that
I am the exalt-er of those who shrink

you are a lioness
you are rising with a roar
and you will shake us all.
