I Kept Silent Still

The roar of a lion took me aback.
It was filled with the unexpected voice
Shrilling hurting my ears track
It wasn’t a song but noise
Went crying and moaning all over
I listened kept looking like I had no choice
I wished I could hid myself under cover
I kept staring and rooted myself numbed
It demanded help and a hold to stop fervour
I could say “stop” and end all that burned
But I kept silent like it didn’t matter
And it stopped roaring but nothing turned
Lion smiled and up he gathered
But I knew that it pained still
I kept silent still, endamaged.
