Lion in Grey

Sometimes down

Never out

Holding ground

Without doubt

 

Mind is sharp

Will is firm

In my heart

Passions burn

 

Fool to some

Hero of others

Haters I shun

Embracing lovers

 

Counsel my own

Kept to myself

Conviction grown

Above all else

 

Neither genius

Nor beastly brute

Man of reason

Lover of truth

 

Greatness elusive

Continue to strive

My ego reclusive

All on the line

 

Small am I

Dust awoken

Reaching high

Chains broken

 

Reject surrender

Struggle revered

Humble contender

I persevere
