Poem: Lying Down With Lions

Lying Down With Lions
by, Melissa R. Mendelson

We lie down with lions,  
so they could chew on our bones,  
puncture our skin,  
and savor victory.  
We lie down with lions,  
deafened by their roar,  
swallowing up our cries.  
We lie down with lions 
for we must be led,  
even if the path is narrow,  
but our faith is blind.  
We lie down with lions,  
so the jungle will not take us.  
And we will live another day.
