17 The Lion Poem by Athul KrishnaA

17 The Lion

Rating: 4.8
 


Look at that mane
All so yellow,
Look at those eyes
Looking so cruel
Look at those musles
Ready to pounce upon
And tear apart with
Those sharp nails
look at those teeth
All so bloody
Dripping blood all over!
Why did god make you king?
Oh you scary lion!

every creature on the earth has a place in the scheme of things, but why did God make a lion so ferocious. good question. for a 10 year old you raise big questions. good writing Athul.

That a 10 year old boy wrote this, should not diminish a metaphorical meaning to its content. God, in his wisdom, speaks to us in many ways. Even, through the verse of children speaking the words of the King of Kings. GW62
