The heart of a lion

6 Feb

 

Where there is a heart
there is a feeling
where there is courage
there are risks
Where there is integrity
there is a big chance of death
The heart of a lion has heart
The heart of a lion has spirit
The heart of a lion has bravado
The heart of a lion fierce
yet tamable
The heart of a lion a true champ
there he is, standing tall, alert
ready to give, ready to die
there she is defender, protector
sharp, compassionate all at once
“never leave a man down” they shout
ready to fight, ready to kill
ready to be killed
The heart of a lion a true warrior
valiant, marching on, heart installed
destination, purpose red, white, and blue
there she is stamped in the lower parts
of the jungle, eyes ready hands tightly
engraved on the gun, making it one with their bodies
in the face of death but remaining strong
These are your children, family, lovers, friends
these are the heart of a lion
