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
