lion with a rabbit heart

lion with a rabbit heart

Quiet was safer.

My roars would roll out choked with fear

Dissolving into coughs

Until I discovered

It is possible to be both

A lion and a rabbit at the same time.

Soft and hard

Afraid yet still strong

Staring down the future with trembling heart and twitching ears

Ready to pounce.
