One Roar

The lion roars
and emptiness is filled with sound
as power echoes round about
to keep all others out

then silence fills the void
for the emptiness
found deep inside
surrounds in loneliness
his strength impressed

moving in eternal tides
with no one at his side
as he searches far and wide
for one who cares

yet how can anyone repair
the damage done
when fear is spun in density
and grounded in
the vast intensity
of just one roar
