Open Your Mouth And Roar

Lion of Judah

Open your mouth, and                  ____

“ROAR!!!”

                Cause my love to glow

                                                                                ____

                Cause my dreams to soar

                                Please make my dreams come

                                True                                                                       ____

 

                                Please cause me to live like

                                You

                Show your strong teeth

                To my enemies

                                                                                ___

                Make them buckle, make

                Them shake at their knees

Lion of Judah,

Open your mouth, and                  ____

“ROAR!!!”

    You using the sound of the lion and adjective associated with that animal made me pause. That was a good effect, like a subtle command. Did you use the shape of a lion’s head? I can see one, if not them I am coco for coco puffs :P.

      Thank you very much! I wasn’t really going the Lion’s head perse more like his paw and scratch marks (the aftermath of his power) but if you interpreted something different that is awesome!

    I like this. (I’m probably a little biased as I wrote about the Lion and the Lamb https://nicholeq.wordpress.com/ ) But i do think that your words and how you arranged them helped me to feel the power of the Lion and his ROAR!
