Meek as a sheep slow as a turtle
gentle like the wind calm as the sea.
 
That's who I am.
 
Silent water runs deep, fathom it's depth
chill in the cold drown with the fear.
 
A lion attacks it's prey in unguarded moments
a predator out to prove supremacy
yet instills fear not love and respect.
 
Love is a commitment and a decision.
A magic feeling shared by two people
bonded by respect and not fear.
 
Competition is never the language of love.
Because it is not a game.
Thus, it rules out your
contention.
 
Great as you may seem in the arena of competition
you will never be happy because you do not speak
the language of love.
