Formally, I would like to point out that writing this piece; I kept my peace. Once upon a dark time in my life, I was one some nobody’s ‘cub’. And though I had long loved The Lion King before this toxic time, this movie became a strange and twisted theme to my life. But I had owned memories related to this movie; deeply rooted in my psyche.
My parents had this wooden chair. It’s red (green, but do I really even know?) Anyway, enjoy this. It is truly from one of the most purest and untainted times of my life.
Come with me,
to run free,
to Pride Rock.
I hear there are sapphire skies.
Fireflies replace street lights.
Hold onto me tight,
Can you feel the love in the air tonight?
Every queen usually has someone she leans on.
I don’t need a ring! I’m glad you can’t wait to be my king.
Everyone will look left,
To see us standing in spotlight.
Lets hop right to Rafiki’s tree,
to remind us at last,
that we are not our past.
“Remember who you are”,
Young Nala, young Simba Cub.
And you’ll go so far across the stars.
Life is breezy and sweet like G-Eazy,
when all you gotta do is by,
It means no worries, for the rest of your days.
So stretch out your tails as slow as a snail.
In the warm African sun,
where wondering free is absolute fun.
Most importantly of all, remember to always give love,
To the Circle of Life.
