The pain that have cost us, the evils which have never happened.
- Thomas Jefferson

I've grown up
But not taller
It's seems my dreams
grow still smaller
For fear of defeat
Rejection is the current projection
I thought I could brave the day
But I'm sad to say
No I'm not taller
Instead I've grown
Smaller, smaller.

The author's comments:
I thought the lion could symbolize the potential lost in a predator that was lost. What we usually imagine for someone of that caliber. But instead this is the truth, this is what you see. A king brought to his knees, starving.
