RITES Part VI: Strength
Strength enough to kiss the face of a Lion
Strength to cut away what binds you
Strength to beam like a leonine Sun, smiling or not
Strength to carry you farther than you thought you could go,
Strength in the form of horns or shedding,
Strength, even, to unfold into the song
of a life overgrown with beauty
even after everything
