Poem: The Lion & The Buck

What really matters is the same for you
as that which matters to the lion and the buck,
the lioness and the doe.
They lift their heads to God the same as you, you know.
They hear his call, they have their flesh.
It calls to them the way yours calls to you.

Of course, I would agree that it was true
If you should tell me that the lion is not the buck,
the lioness not the doe.
Alike unlike, and not at all like you, I know.
They do not speak, they do not share
a common tongue; and do not dream like you.

Yet dream they do and wake to hope anew
to fuel their passions fresh, the lion and the buck,
the lioness and the doe.
In search of liberty and happiness they go. We know
they do not doubt, are not afraid,
but venture forth in faith as so should you.
