"With passion, patience, and persistence, anything is possible."

Am I the Lion? (poem)

By Colin Dunbar

King of the beasts -
And yet entrapped, I am.

In this cage of iron and stone;
with another, yet I am alone.

In this cage I am cared for,
but the thing I long for even more -
To be free and wild;
I am no better than a kitten -
watched over by his parents.

I can roar, and I can growl;
but to avail, I may never prowl
the wild open spaces -
Free and wild.

Am I really the lion?

Or am I a tamed house kitten.
