Autumn Lion

It was by chance I stumbled 
into the fierce lions terrain 
and he looks like all the rest 
with large claws, sharp teeth, and his mane
Instinct readied my legs to run 
To fight, escape, this deadly trap 
Scars unhealed from past encounters
Wounds I’m unready to unwrap
Still - magnificent soft brown eyes 
Can lure in any of the lamb 
Trusting such a dangerous creature 
Surely falling to the beasts sham
Impossible one is diff'rent 
but the lamb must begin to trust:
Innocent is this one lion,
Proven to be honest and just
