Sonnet: Each One Is Strong However Weak - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

The Lion thinks ‘tis meant for tougher tasks;
And spares the Lioness and cubs hard works;
The Lioness is tough too though it masks;
Appearing gentle while it lurks.

Man keeps all tougher jobs in his purview,
And spares women and children from much risk;
Yet, when ‘tis time, women too change their hue,
And children too don’t always like lambs frisk.

The weaker creatures have their tougher side,
That is brought out in times of dangers, need;
One’s toughness is something, we wish to hide,
Don’t underestimate even a weed.

Each creature has innate strengths well-concealed;
In times of need, this gets sometimes revealed.
