Becoming the Lion You See


To hide,

Hide from the world around me so they may not see,

See the man behind the curtain.

Oh, to be free.

Free from my mind that holds me.

To you I look like a mighty lion,

Strong, Fearless, and knowing.

Yet to me,

In my heart I only know the truth.

Insecurity that holds me back,

Self of steam that I do lack.

If only she would come,

Come, help open the curtain for all to see.

And help me down the path toward the Lion I am meant to be.
