2018: be a lion, i will still be water

2018: be a lion, i will still be water

you roar like intimidated lions,

yet your masked cry is only drowned out

by the roar of our ocean of love.

 

you parade towards our waters,

unaware that the moon is on our side.

lifted up by the tide, we only rise.

 

you bring torches of fire,

yet now we must chuckle.

we are water,

we are waves,

we are the ocean.

we are not intimidated.

 

so roar,

we will only roar louder.

bring your whole herd,

we will only out-water you.

 

and dare to give us a choice to join you,

we will say no,

go ahead and “be a lion,

we will still be water”.
