I Shall Roar

I Shall Roar

I am not roaring
I confessed, sadly, to My Lord
Is it enough
To serve, to smile, to long
Steadily throughout my days?
Perhaps a roaring cry will not come
Now, in my soul’s journey.

A soft sadness remains in my heart
Seeing this, my flame
Remain calm and unreaching
I scan a sea of faces
Looking for that burn of desire in his or her eyes
This message I receive;
It can be mine!
It can be mine!
Again, I shall roar.

– Laura Zeffer.
