There is a lion inside of you

And she wants to be free

I have seen glimpses of her wildness

When you forget to pull her leash

I have acted as prey

Trying to tempt her to be released

But you have muzzled her roar

Barely giving her enough air to breathe

Why do we fear the lion inside us being untamed?

When she holds the courageous power

We need to break free and change

I have no interest in living

A half-life where my lion is trapped

She intuitively guides me in

Following my soul’s map

Her roar is far louder than

The whispers of my fear

I beg you to release your lion

And claim the love that has always been here!

– Poet Allie Michelle, The Lion Inside
