If you kick me when I’m down, you better pray I don’t get up.
Very few can really mean that.
All those Nat Geo, Discovery videos on one side, and one look at the king of the jungle…sigh, nothing compares it to the reality. There is a chill in my bone, and I haven’t realized it but my heartbeat has stopped. He walks one step away from me like he owns the place. Well, to be fair, he totally does. But he has a barricade around him, and yet I am the sheep in a prison jeep.
How can a creature like him still demand our obedience, our conformity by his mere sight? Everything has stopped, and there is pin drop silence. The king of the jungle has arrived for his food.
