Humble Lion - Poem by Matt Ancient

I have teeth
but I don't bite
I have strength
and not to fight
I have power to heal
and not to kill
you want me to
look down upon myself
and trembleand tremble
because am humble
but I am not evil
to cause you trouble
for my body is a temple
I have teeth
but I don't bite
I have strength
and not to fight
