Dawn Of The Lion


And so another calendar year is opened to day one

Reflecting on days gone past and paths that led astray

My heart pulses in eager anticipation of change to come

As I liken myself to the mightiest of all majestic kings

Surveying my kingdom with the confidence of a Lion

At the rise of the morning sun


A picture of poise and power as I observe my domain

I shall walk with the pride and dignity familiar to my kind

The bold swagger of royalty ever present in my gait

An untamed instinct in command of my noble demeanor

My newfound strength and ferocity in abundance

As no signs of weakness remain


So now with the wisdom and courage befitting a King

I set off on my odyssey to make easy prey of my destiny

Drinking from the crystal clear waters of the river of life

While feasting on the fresh carcasses of my adversaries

Mine shall be a triumphant and glorious new empire

One of which the Angels sing.

    • Thanks Johnny. Sometimes the ideas and the words and the sentiment all just fall together. I hope it happens more often this year. Happy New Year BTW and thank you for being such a supportive reader of my work.

  1. John — what a an awesome surprise to find this delight in my reader. I love the way you grasp life and are so supportive of others to do so, as well. So glad I have such a Majestic King on my side. Loved this …. of course, what have you done that I haven’t loved??
