The Lion's Mask

The lion has a silky cover
The mask of a great golden beast
The dark and light of what is under
The very most and the very least

The lion has many secrets 
A story to unfold 
The whispers, voices inside it's head
Is just another story remaining untold

To follow the lion into the depth
And drown in your own sorrows
And the eyes the that take away your breath
Is just another reason to see who follows

The lion's mask is another way
Of saying there's something to hide
But honesty's the only truth
So wonder
What is it's thunder,
And what will you see behind?
